    The multiple world record holder and extreme athlete Jonas Deichmann plunges into his next adventure – the most spectacular and longest triathlon ever attempted, from Munich to Munich around the world. The journey – a 120 times Ironman distance – will take him to his physical and mental limits. 460km swimming, 21.000km on bike, 5.000KM running. Jonas begins his journey in the midst of the pandemic: travel routes are closed overnight; border crossings become a feat of strength, presenting him with unforeseen challenges. On top of that, he grapples with the impact of humanity's ecological footprint in nature and the way climate change affects our planet earth.
