ATLANTA -

Two home-grown Atlanta brothers are celebrating a major victory! Kyle and Brent Pease finished their first tandem Ironman in Madison, WI, on Sunday.

While Brent has competed in an Ironman race before, Sunday's competition is a first for Kyle – who has cerebral palsy. During the race, Brent pulled Kyle in a kayak for the 2.4 mile swim. They rode a specially designed bicycle for 112 miles.

Brent pushed a specially equipped racing wheelchair for the 26-mile marathon.

Now, an Ironman must be completed in 17 hours. The Pease brothers finished theirs in just over 15 hours. A big congratulations to Kyle and Brent and their entire Ironman team!

The brothers share their stories of triumph and living their dreams to help and inspire others through their achievements and through the work done at The Kyle Pease Foundation.
