Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Hines Ward added a new title to his resume Saturday in Hawaii. Not content with the titles of football and dancing star, Ward now is an Ironman.

The two-time Super Bowl winner finished one of the world’s most challenging triathlon courses in 13 hours, 8 minutes and 15 seconds.

Ward was the 1,680th athlete to cross the finish line after a 2.4-mile ocean swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a full 26.2-mile marathon. He swam a 1:20:01, biked a 06:21:12 and finished off with a 5:12:56 run.
