While many of us look back at 2020 as a “bad year” in triathlon, for Chris Nikic it was quite the opposite. The young man from Maitland, Florida, wrote history by being the first athlete with Down syndrome to finish a full-distance triathlon. Ever since this incredible performance Nikic has been all over the news, and it hasn’t stopped with written interviews or a training session with world-champion triathlete Javier Gomez, because Nikic will be featured in the first episode of “Anything Is Possible – The Series” this Sunday.
Nikic will be followed during his training and racing. You can watch the documentary on NBC on January 3, 2021, at 2:00pm (EST).
The IRONMAN Group is proud to announce the premiere episode of Anything Is Possible® – The Series, which will air on NBC, Jan. 3, 2021 at 2:00 pm EST / 11:00 am PST with the story of @ChrisNikic, the first person with Down syndrome to complete a full-distance IRONMAN® triathlon. pic.twitter.com/pqhQ4ZDF7a
