DIARY: Iron Man is just a Devil in disguise

The New Jersey Devils have been one of the NHL’s best franchises over the last decade, winning the Stanley Cup in 1995 and qualifying for the playoffs every year since. As of late, however, evidence has leaked out that the team’s best overall athlete doesn’t even lace up the skates for games or practices.

Who’s the hidden Devil?



31-year-old PR director Kevin Dessart, who recently qualified to compete

in last Saturday’s Iron Man Triathlon World Championships.



Dessart, whose effort is sponsored by energy supplement Phil’s Bar,

qualified by completing a trial triathlon - consisting of a 2.4-mile

swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a complete 26.2-mile marathon - in

slightly under 10 hours. This marks his second time in the famed Iron

Man event, the first being in 1994 when, despite getting a flat tire on

his bike and never having completed a marathon, he qualified with a time

of 11:05.



’That was the first time, and I went out there without any

expectations,’ he told the New York Daily News. ’I’ve come so far since

then.’
