Chris Nikic set a new world record by being the first person with Down Syndrome to complete a 140.6-mile Ironman. His mission is to inspire others like him to pursue their dreams and goals.
His greatest achievement is showing others how shifting your focus from your disabilities to your abilities and pursuing your dreams with an unwavering tenacity, a positive attitude and a no-quit grit can help anyone achieve their goals and dreams.
Chris continues to compete with the next big events in 2022 being the Hawaii Ironman World Championship, The Boston, NYC and London Marathons and The Special Olympics USA Games.
Chris through his efforts has become financially self-sufficient, buying his own car and home recently with his primary sources of income derived from public speaking, his merchandising business and his Adidas endorsement. Adidas in fact is in the process of making a custom shoe for Chris and specifically for the Down Syndrome community.
