A 21-year-old guy became the first man with Down Syndrome to complete an Ironman triathlon event.

Three decades back, his father had invited him to work out longer. Training originally started with one press-up per day but has been followed by tens of thousands more, leading to the historical accomplishment.

Nikic has been awarded the 17-hour time athletes get to finish the race, which he completed in 16 hours, 46 minutes, and eight seconds, making official recognition from Guinness World Records.

The Ironman triathlon was operating for 42 decades, which was the very first time that an athlete with Down Syndrome entered the race.
