Hines Ward proved he's an athletic beast in Hawaii this weekend -- taking part in one of the most difficult triathlon courses ever ... for 13 hours!!

The whole race went down in Kona for the Ironman Triathlon where Ward finished 1,680th place yesterday.

To complete the course ... Hines had to swim, ride his bike and run for insane lengths -- 2.4 miles, 112 miles and 26.2 miles, respectively.

After the race the 37-year old athlete said he couldn't have done it without his trainer and the man upstairs adding, "God is good! Trust me, I kept talking to The Lord to help me get through the marathon."

A triathlete now! He should try being a Father now to his two - 2 year old daughters (and no they are not twins) Jordyn and Jia. People praise this man for his accomplishments, little do they know he neglects two of his three kids. Run that story TMZ!!!

Don't know how people do that. I trained for half marathon and was so exhausted and tired all the time. (I was running before so I was in good shape.) A marathon is just too long. How do you train for that and then do the biking and the swimming? I do give him props, though :-)

so what about all those finishers who are not religious? who helped them??? and all the devout christians who failed to finish, why did god neglect them? and if there really was a "god", i seriously doubt it would care about triathlons, i mean with all the disease and starvation in the world it "created"
