13-year-old boy with cerebral palsy reaches a milestone at the 31st Annual Cleveland Triathlon


CLEVELAND - A Cleveland family reached a milestone today in their journey with cerebral palsy. Matt and Diane Cox were holding back tears as they saw their son, 13-year-old Ben Cox, walk over the finish line at the 31st Annual Cleveland Triathlon.

Ben walked a mile and a half, a feat he overcame against all odds. "This is the first time that he's walked here on his own. We've done a shorter thing with him but this is the longest he's ever gone," his mother told News 5.

Cleveland Triathlon defending champ riding wave of success


CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Nick Glavac's formula to repeat as the Cleveland Triathlon's Olympic Division champion is pretty simple.

"I don't think I'll do bad this Sunday. If I do well, it will be based on my biking," said Glavac, who not only won last year's Olympic Division title, but was second in 2015.

"I'm hoping my bike fitness will carry me through this race."

Glavac, 30, is a former runner at Mentor High School and Notre Dame College. His victory a year ago was keyed by a biking -- or cycling -- time of one hour and 55.3 seconds, more than six minutes better than the next best cycling time.
