As seen in the clip below, the extraordinary ”Iron Nun” unstoppable as she runs, bikes and swims with the best of them.

In her life, Buder has competed in more than 40 IRONMAN triathlon races, which includes a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run.

When Buder reached 82, she set another world record as the oldest IRONMAN triathlon athlete. Watch the video below and get your slow clap ready.
