The humble Ron Schildknecht

Swiss Pro Ronnie Schildknecht has quite a few Ironman titles to his name and most recently won the 2013 Spec-Savers Ironman South Africa. We had a video chat with this humble athlete in Switzerland.

On the way to the win at the Spec-Savers Ironman South Africa. And yes 79 kg is 175 pounds.

It is obvious that Ronnie isn't much of a morning person.

The pic below is Ronnie Schildknecht with Kevin and Nikki Garwood after Ironman South Africa where Ron had reached out to Nikki and presented him with his winning trophy. "Ronnie really is an amazing person and we were quite surprised when he came across to us and handed Nikki his trophy. Nikki really loves the trophy and just wanted to hug it for the rest of the evening. He really treasures the gesture. Ronnie is not only humble but also a gentleman," said Kevin Garwood to slowtwitch.
