The ironman with something extra in the tank

Completing the Cairns Ironman is a great achievement in itself but imagine doing the race with only 30 per cent lung capacity.

That’s the challenge Brisbane’s Russell Winwood has set himself.

Russell was diagnosed in 2011 with a progressive condition called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and will do the run and cycle legs with an oxygen tank in tow.

Russell is hoping to raise $50,000 for the Lung Foundation and he tells Mark his race will be a world first.
