Imagine, a 3.8km swim, a 180km cycle and running 42.2km in one day! The Ironman, the ultimate one day endurance race. Liezel did it – in style, within only 12 weeks . Her next goal was the Unlimited Dusi, the World’s toughest canoe marathon. Prior to setting up this challenge she had no experience in canoe paddling. In 9 weeks, she not only learned how to handle a canoe, but also how to avoid naysayers and that niggling self-doubt. It’s possible. She did it and overcame all the odds. During her extreme sport journeys shediscovered the strength, often more mentally than physically, within herself, and how to unleash it.
