    100 Meters (Spanish: 100 metros) is a 2016 Spanish film directed by Marcel Barrena.[1] The plot is based on the true story of a Spanish man with Multiple sclerosis who tried to finish an Iron-Man: 3,8 km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42 km running. After he received his diagnosis he was told that he would not be able to walk 100 meters within a year.

    Inspirational film. However, the ending killed it for me.

    You've got 17 hours to finish an Ironman, otherwise it's a DNF. The midnight finish line of an Ironman is one of the most inspiring thing in all sports. I'm not sure why they chose to make it seem everyone abandoned him to finish alone. Ridiculous. It would have been much more inspiring to have all the spectators cheering him on.

    If you want to see what the midnight finish of a real Ironman looks like, start at the 3min mark of the video below. A year of training comes down to just a few seconds. This lady has been out there grinding for 17 hours.
