Two Young Brothers Inspire Sports Illustrated

SpouseLink.Org |

Nine year-old Connor Long, along with his seven year-old brother, Cayden have become a triathlete dream team. At four months old, Cayden was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, leaving him unable to walk or talk by himself.  Nearly two years ago, Connor had the idea to begin competing with his brother: swimming while pulling Cayden in a raft, cycling while towing him in a trailer, and pushing his younger brother in a trailer as he runs. The boys have competed in 14 races, and look to compete with one another well into the future. We are truly inspired by this story of brotherly love!
