A Special Olympics Story: Chris Nikic

More than a Special Olympics Florida athlete and Ambassador, more than the first person with Down syndrome to become an IRONMAN and landing in the Guinness World Records, more than finishing the New York and Boston Marathons, and more than winning ESPY and Laureus Awards, Chris Nikic was a young man with big dreams of owning a house, buying a car, and marrying the love of his life. With hard work and the help of his father Nik, Chris has already accomplished two of those goals. Learn how this once self-described, couch potato is going for his dreams, demonstrating true inclusion and slaying naysayers at the same time!
