He ain't heavy...he's my brother!

A Danish man with cerebral palsy completed the Ironman Triathion with the help of his twin brother. PEDER Mondrup, 34, has spent his life in a wheelchair, but during the grueling race, he felt uninhibited. His brother Steen swam 2.4 miles while pulling Peder on a raft, cycled 112 miles on a custom- built bike with a wheelchair in tow, and then ran 26.2 miles while pushing Peder’s wheelchair in front of him. The brothers completed the triathion after 13 hours and 32 minutes. Peder said, “I felt like the person I see myself as. I say, “Hurray for Brotherhood!!!
