Singer, actress and recent mother of twins Jennifer Lopez completed her first triathlon over the weekend in 2 hours, 23 minutes and 28 seconds.

Lopez, 39, competed in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sunday just seven months after giving birth to twins Max and Emme, raising 127,000 dollars for the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.

"This is an amazing day," she told reporters. "I feel really great and so glad I finished and that I made it out of the water but, more amazing than that, I feel really great that we raised 127,000 dollars for the Children's Hospital."

Lopez was cheered on from the sidelines by husband Marc Anthony, who escorted her to a VIP area with his arm securely around her after she crossed the finish line, exhausted, but with her fists pumped in victory.

Other stars who competed were Matthew McConaughey, Felicity Huffman, William H Macy, John Hamm, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Jon Cryer, Monique Coleman, Scott Foley and Anna Kournikova, dpa reported.
