He won eight medals, including two golds, by going out fast and sprinting over distances from 500 to 1,500 meters. Forging his way through a school of thrashing arms and legs in the open-water swim over a 1.2-mile course on Lucky Peak Reservoir was a new experience, he says, sort of like having somebody "punching you in the face while you're swimming."Then, after the swim, he still had a 56-mile bike ride and 13.1-mile run."I went as hard as I possibly could on the bike, and I got off the bike thinking, 'OK, I've got to get through this run,'" he says.

It’s a chance where, because it’s so grueling and so difficult, it’s a test against myself.” And the entire process—from the training to race day—will be documented in an eight-episode documentary-style Web series called .
