Whoever said accountants are plain characters? Not content in spending a day in and day out with his college textbooks, Ben joined set his mind on a new sporting challenge in triathlon and soon rose to captain his college Aquathlon team.

2 years down the road, Ben qualified for the World Championship in his first 70.3 race at Hefei 2016 with a performance that bested other more experienced competitors. Perhaps coming from a background playing water polo similar to Ironman legend Dave Scott has had great benefits, or perhaps it’s his discipline for competition.

Racing the Kona Ironman is doubly exciting for the young rising star of Singapore’s triathlon scene— an event of a lifetime, as it is—because is also to be his first full-Ironman race. Defying the odds is not new to the 25-year-old, born on a leap day.

Since qualifying, Ben has pulled out all stops to excel atthe new substantial distance, including taking his training across the globe when he spent months living in São Paulo, Brasil as an exchange student. Racing has been a constantly evolving adventure he thoroughly revels in. No doubt his journey continues on after this World Championship.

Look out for him in Kona, Hawaii and wave to say hi to this suave gentleman with a sunny disposition, or simply follow him on Instagram, @ironmanbooi for regular updates!
