In the latest fad of celebrities jumping into the world of triathlon, David Beckham’s jealousy of friend Gordon Ramsay led to the announcement from news sources on October 22, 2013, that he will be competing in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii in 2014.
Gordon completed the race in 2013 with advice from Beckham which lead Beckham to announce that he will compete in the world's toughest triathlon with his friend Gordon Ramsay in 2014.
From Xtri.com, ''He misses competing since retiring from soccer so it didn't take long for Gordon to convince him to do it. 'They've been getting up at 4 A.M. to train on the beach. Friends are joking they're like the leads from Rocky with their dedication.''
In 2013, Gordon conquered the 112 mile cycle ride, 2.4 mile swim and a 26.2 mile run in just over 14 hours. The 'Kitchen Nightmares' star traded fatty foods for super-healthy alternatives, including vegan shakes, almond milk and lots of fresh vegetables, he also works out three to four days a week.
