To see Noah and Lucas in action, your students can watch this local news clip from 2014, back when they were just starting to do triathlons together. Today the boys are four years older with many triathlons under their belts!
Brothers, Best Pals, Teammates
Noah doesn’t want his brother, Lucas, to miss out on anything just because he’s in a wheelchair.
Learning Objective: Students will learn essential paragraph-writing skills
Check out this clip of the brothers who inspired Noah to do triathlons with Lucas: Conner and Cayden Long.
Here’s a fun compare & contrast: the most difficult adult triathlon of all, the Ironman, consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run (AKA a full marathon!). A typical kids’ triathlon for kids ages 6-10 is a 100-yard swim, a 3-mile bike ride, and a ½-mile run. If any of your students are interested in trying out a tri, direct them to this site, which lists races that take place all over the country.
