Mitch Seavey, of Seward, Alaska, won his third Iditarod. Not only did Seavey beat his own record on being the oldest to win the Iditarod at age 57, but he also won the race in record time: 8 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes and 13 seconds.

The elder Seavey already won “The Last Great Race” in 2013 at the age of 53.

Dallas Seavey took second place, with Nicolas Petit coming into Nome five minutes later for third.
