‘Fastest man on wheels’ Button beaten by 15-year-old girl in triathlon!July 6th, 2010 - 6:30 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 6 (ANI): Formula One champion Jenson Button was beaten by a 15-year-old athlete Sky Draper in a triathlon.
According to The Daily Express Sky, who is the UK champ in her age group for the gruelling multi-sport event, finished three minutes and six places ahead of Button.
She did her swimming, cycle and running regimen in a time of 61 minutes, against the 30-year-old driver’s 64 minutes.
“It was such a great race. I didn’t even know he was competing, so it was a big surprise to see him there at the end. We had a chat and he was telling me about his training and asking me about mine,” said Sky of Northwood, Middlesex.
Button, the fastest man on four wheels, competed in the Humanrace sprint triathlon in Eton under the pseudonym Jenson Britton, to avoid publicity.
Sky, who trains up to 19 hours per week and hopes to compete in the 2016 Olympics, finished third in the race, with Button in ninth place. (ANI)
