Athlete with visual impairments finishes open triathlon in under two hours

Triathlete Aaron Scheidies
A triathlete with visual impairments on Sunday finished an Olympic-distance triathlon in just under two hours, just 14 minutes behind the winner. "I'm ecstatic," said Aaron Scheidies, 25, who has lost 90% of his vision. "I wanted to prove to general society that people with disabilities can do things better than able-bodied individuals."
