Rick van Beek

Off-topic, but this story brought a lump to my throat.

"A devoted father has completed a triathlon carrying his 13-year-old cerebral palsy-afflicted daughter across land and through water so that she could complete the gruelling event.

Rick van Beek's feat of endurance and show of love for his daughter Madison have led many to call  the man from Byron Center, Michigan the 'father of the century'.

But it is not the first race of its kind for van Beek, who said he has participated in more than 70 events, including half-marathons, triathlons and other outdoor races, as part of 'Team Maddy'."
