Wilnar is a soft-spoken man with – as he puts it – simple joys and needs in life, hence the moniker: “Simply Wilnar”. But behind the calm, quiet and unassuming exterior lies a real turbo-driven high-octane long-distance running machine. Wilnar is the epitome of the multi-talented multisporter. Firstly there’s Wilnar the runner, who has accomplished everything from 5K’s under 20 minutes, to half Marathons in 1 hour and 30 minutes, and even the intensely grueling 100-mile (160 km) BDM ultramarathon in a mind- and body-numbing 17 hours and 35 minutes, good enough for first place overall and making him the current fastest 100-mile ultramarathoner in the country.
But it doesn’t stop there. In 2010 Wilnar took the plunge into duathlons & triathlons, and also there he has had an impressive list of results and accomplishments. That same high-performance engine contained within his legs that makes him such a high-speed runner also translates to a strong cyclist and swimmer. And only time will tell what other feats of physical endurance he will take on next. For a guy who’s known as “Simply”, his various passions in sport can be quite complex.
Another claim to fame: Wilnar started (albeit, unintentionally) TPB’s now trademark “Right Leg Forward” pose used in many of our team photos. Powerpuff Boys is proud to have his talent on the team!
