Given the theory that molecular hydrogen can significantly down-regulate expressions of inflammation-related genes and selectively reduce hydroxyl radical, there are reasons to believe that cytokine storm

Ironman Florida: Chris Nikic made history as the first person with Down syndrome to complete triathlon

Guiness World Records recognized Nikic’s achievement after he finished a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-marathon run at the Ironman Florida competition in Panama City Beach.
“Ironman. Goal set and achieve,” said Nikic in a post to Instagram. “Time to set a new and Bigger Goal for 2021.”

Nikic completed the race in 16 hours 46 minutes and 9 seconds — 14 minutes under the 17-hour cutoff time.

“We are beyond inspired, and your accomplishment is a defining moment in Ironman history that can never be taken away from you,” the Ironman Triathlon organization said in a post to Twitter.
The organization documented the historic race with a series of updates to social media on the day of the competition. The final two miles of Nikic’s run were streamed live on Ironman’s Facebook page.
