Nike’s Newest Ad Stars an 86-Year-Old Nun Who’s Tougher Than You

At the age of 65, Sister Buder completed her first IRONMAN World Championship triathlon in Hawaii, before going on to become the oldest woman to ever complete an IRONMAN triathlon, at age 75. From there, the American nun set a world record as the oldest IRONMAN triathlon competitor when she was 82 years old. Now at the age of 86, she has completed over 40 IRONMAN races, each comprising of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run. For that, she is appropriately referred to as the “Iron Nun.”
