He has a relentless work ethic and there is no doubt the Ironman World title is within his grasp.
Ben describes his journey into the sport of Triathlon. He describes moments of self-doubt and questioning whether he should continue to reaching podiums in some of the world's biggest Ironman events. Dealing with his 2018 injury and the gratefulness he felt to come back and race in 2019 and win his 3rd South African Ironman, placing 4th at the World Championships and run the fastest ever marathon in an Ironman at the Florida Ironman in 2019.
Ben describes his sleep routine, what supplements he uses, and the importance of each member of his team. Finally, Ben gives incredible takeaways on how he uses various mental strategies to optimize himself.
Ben concludes with one final statement - The importance of mindset - "So much of top-level racing is a mindset - Self Belief, the Passion, the Hunger, the Desire to suffer, and also having things in your life be aligned and your relationships and have gratefulness for your life"
