Jenson Button tackled the 2009 London Triathlon. The formula one driver took advantage of the formula time out to join 6000 amateurs at the London triathlon.
Button raced through the Olympic distance – a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run – in a personal best time of two hours and seven minutes.
He did the 1500m swim in 24 minutes, the 40Km bike ride he covered in 1 hour 3 minutes and the 10K run in an impressive 35 minutes.
