Lokelani McMichael isn’t just a beautiful first name, she’s also a Hawaiian born Ironman who was the youngest to ever finish the popular race. Her parents own a surf shop out in Kailua-Kona, where the Ironman originates, and this served as her first taste of the sport. As a triathlete McMichael has seen intermittent success but as a model she has left the competition in the dust: appearing in GQ, Men’s Health, Shape Magazine, and even Runner’s World. Lokelani is in the Guinness Book of World Records thanks to her completed Ironman at just the age of 18. Only 2,000 people ever get to run the event in a year and she had to beat out over 48,000 for the opportunity so you can guarantee that she isn’t going to take the success afterward for granted.
