Chattanooga, Tennessee—

A 23-year-old named Chris Nikic just became the first person with Down syndrome to complete an Ironman race.  That’s a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride, and then a full 26.2-mile marathon.  He finished in 16 hours and 31 minutes, with almost a full half-hour to spare before the 17-hour cutoff.
