Father and Son team
At the LA Tri Express Series 1 race this past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting Bill and Jonathon Davis. Bill is the father who is visually impaired considered legally blind. He is a representative of the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). His son Jonathon raced with him in the bike and run sections as a guide. It was extremely inspiring to see a father and son team race as a team.
I learned that Bill has recently been sponsored by Korea to race in an Ironman race in Korea. He told me that he's looking for a partner to accompany him in the Ironman race (preferably Korean speaking but not a requirement). If you know of anybody who would be willing to race with Bill please contact him. He has a great story to tell and you can read more about him at his website billyraydavis.com. Bill has tons of races coming up which you can see on his site two of these races are Wildflower 5/5/06 and Korea Ironman 8/27/06 of which he is still looking for a partner.
