A blind athlete has defied the odds after competing in his third triathlon in Tempe, Arizona Sunday.
Kyle Coon lost his eyesight at age six after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
Today, at age 26, his blindness doesn’t slow him down. Instead, it motivates him to keep going.
Case and point: Ironman Arizona. That’s the name of the triathlon he competed in with his guide, Alan Greening. Tethered together, they swam 2.4 miles, before transitioning to an hours-long tandem bike ride, and then running 26.2 miles to finish the race.
