PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) UPDATE: 11/8/2015 5:00 p.m.
Earlier this week we told you about Justin Knight, a man with Cerebral Palsy, received some help from triathletes from the Kyle Pease Foundation. After Saturday's competition, Knight is now an Ironman.
Knight along with his team of Paul Linck, Tim Myers, and John Rutledge completed the course and beat their goal of finishing the race in 14 hours.
Justin's mother, Teresa, was waiting for them at the finish line to put his medal on him.
Justin said one of his favorite parts of the race was riding down the West Bay Bridge on Highway 79, where he said they were going more than 30 miles an hour.
The Pease brothers are back in Panama City Beach for the 2015 Ironman Triathlon.
Last year, we introduced you to Brent and Kyle.
Brent pushed Kyle, who has Cerebral Palsy, through the entire course.
This year a new team of Ironmen inspired by their story are headed to the starting line.
Justin Knight, also has Cerebral Palsy but is determined to make it through all three legs of the Ironman course with his teammates.
Paul Linck, a 21-time Ironman, says despite his experience, he is nervous and excited for this race with Knight. Linck will ride with Knight through the bicycle leg of the course.
Tim Myers will push Knight through the marathon portion of the race, and John Rutledge will swim with Knight through the beginning water leg of the triathlon.
"They've been training really hard, every weekend, explained Teresa Knight, Justin's mother. "On Saturdays and Sundays, they put in about six hours each day."
Knight says he hopes his team finishes the race in under 14 hours.
