Kevin Fergusson goes from beer-swilling smoker to Ironman star.
Reece Homfray – SA WEEKEND MARCH 21, 2014 10:00PM
The number “Five” has not been kind to Kevin Fergusson.
His mother, Joy, lost her battle with cancer on January 5, 2006, and his father George was 55 when he drowned while fishing for freshwater lobsters 27 years ago.
Fergusson turns 55 tomorrow and he wants to make it a number to remember for all the right reasons.
It’s why he’s racing the Melbourne Ironman, which will be the first of five gruelling Ironman Triathlons he will do for the year. That’s a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and 42.2km (marathon) run – five times in nine months. Continue reading Beer-swilling smoker to Ironman star
