    The Down Syndrome Ironman – Chris Nikic – Living Healthy Podcast Ep. 48

    The Down Syndrome Ironman – Chris Nikic – Living Healthy Podcast Ep. 48

    The Down Syndrome Ironman

    Chris Nikic attempts to be the first to complete an Ironman event with Down Syndrome.  

    Welcome back to the Living Healthy Podcast! Today we’re going to be talking to an inspirational young man named Chris Nikic - The Down Syndrome Ironman. You see, Chris has Down Syndrome and by crossing that finish line, he became the first person with Down Syndrome to complete an Ironman. He broke a barrier that no one really thought was possible, and he showed the world what someone with Down Syndrome could accomplish if given the chance and the encouragement.

    He’d been training for right around 2 years to make this a reality and he finished with a time of 16 hours, 46 minutes, and 9 seconds. That’s right, he raced for nearly 17 straight hours. Now for those of you that don’t know, an Ironman is a race that starts with a 2.4 mile swim, then a 112 mile bike ride, and finishes by running a full 26.2 mile marathon. It’s a grueling event and one of the greatest physical challenges you can endure. And Chris did it!

    So today we’re joined by Chris and his dad Nik to talk about their incredible journey getting to this point!
