These are some beautiful and touching images: Chris Nikic hands over his Ironman Florida medal to his mom, who wasn’t able to attend his race due to illness. Nikic’ story is known to most triathletes around the world by now: the 21-year-old American became the first person with Down syndrome to complete a Long Distance. You likely already read about his race experiences before and saw the beautiful images. But this moving video, we also can’t deprive you of!
