“It takes tremendous will power, discipline and stamina to complete an #IronMan triathlon-3.8 km swim; 180 km cycle; 42.2 km run. Major General Dogra did that, in Austria, in just 14 hrs! He is a role model and inspiration for all Indians. We salute him!” Gandhi said.

Dogra completed it in 14 hours and 21 minute to become the first serving Indian Army officer and the only General across the world to have completed the ‘Ironman’ competition.
