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."

BTW, Hines you were a triathlete after the first triathlon - you don't have to do an Ironman to be able to say that. Not everyone is given a spot for free in these races, nor can they hire trainers and train relentlessly everyday. I give you credit for this event but don't discredit all of normal people who work a job every day who call ourselves triathletes, no matter what the distance we do...
