Danish twins Peder and Steen Moldrup are worldwide heroes after they completed the KMD Copenhagen Ironman Challenge recently. Why? Well, because Peder is a lifelong wheeluser user, suffering as he does with severe cerebral palsy. With the aid of his brother and some modifications to his chair though, he was able to complete the testing event.
First the pair were required to swim a distance of almost 4km. They’d had a special little lightweight rubber boat made up to allow Steen to pull Peder through with him.
Next up was an incredible 180km bike race! But it was from over… Then came a 42km marathon.
They managed to complete the challenge in 15 hours, 42 minutes and 38 seconds. Pretty good going, huh?
Heroes, the pair of them. We wish them all the best in any further challenges they decide on taking. Good luck, lads!
