M’sia’s favourite celebrity: Alif Satar makes headlines for completing Ironman Langkawi 2019

Actor, singer and TV host Alif Satar appears to have become Malaysia’s favourite celebrity.

Malaysians are raving about the 29-year-old again after he made headlines in August for backing up his co-host Sherry Alhadad after she was body-shamed on the Malaysian singing competition TV show “Big Stage”.

This time, Alif Satar is being praised for completing the Ironman Triathlon.

Yes, it seems that besides being an amazing entertainer, Alif is also extremely physically active.

Organised by the World Triathlon Corporation, the Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance races consisting of a 3.8km swim, 180km bicycle ride and 42km marathon.

Alif took part in this year’s Asian qualifying event, Ironman Langkawi 2019, which took place at Pantai Cenang, Langkawi over last weekend.

Sharing his experience on Instagram, Alif described the race as the most “insane” thing he’s ever done, admitting that during the difficult race, he was not in the best mental state. 

Despite the struggle, Alif managed to complete the race in 15 hours, five minutes and 49 seconds, ultimately winning the title of Ironman.

Malaysians, especially those on social media, recognised and commended Alif for his efforts.

“Awesome-lah, Alif Satar!”

“Take care of your health, exercise. Remember God, don’t forget your daily prayers. You will become like him, with a happy family. I salute you, Alif Satar.”

“He sings well. Is a good actor. An entertaining TV host. Can swim, cycle, AND run a marathon in one day. No controversy. No bullsh*t. Now, this is a real public figure.”

“What can’t Alif Satar do?”

FYI, Alif Satar actually took part in the last Ironman Triathlon in November last year.

He competed in the half triathlon which was also held at Pantai Ceneng, Langkawi and finished the 1.9km swim, 90km bicycle ride and 21km marathon in 7 hours.
