Brothers make history at Ironman triathlon

This is the incredible moment a brother duo became the first to jointly complete the Ironman World Championship – with one pushing and pulling his wheelchair-bound sibling. Wheelchair-bound Kyle Pease, 33, who has spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, was inspired to compete after he watched brother Brent, 35, do a triathlon in 2010. After years of training and finally qualifying, the pair took part in the world championship, alongside able-bodied athletes, last week. Brent swam 2.4 miles towing Kyle in a boat tied to his waist, before he cycled 112 miles in a specially adapted bike, then pushed his brother’s running chair for the 26.2-mile marathon.
