While triathlon enthusiasts from around the world hold their breath and look forward to the spectacle that will take place later today at the PTO 2020 Championship – a race where the world’s top athletes compete and race against each other for a $1,115,000 prize pool – another hero is also on his way at Challenge Daytona: Chris Nikic.

The American athlete with Down’s Syndrome became world famous a few weeks ago when he became the first athlete with Down’s Syndrome to complete a Long Distance at Ironman Florida. But, Nikic dreams bigger and wants to grow every day, so now he is back racing again!
