Impossible Is Just a Word

Chris Nikic made history by becoming the first athlete with Down Syndrome to complete the IRONMAN, the world’s most grueling triathlon, totaling a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.22 mile marathon.

Unveiling the layers of his life with delicate humanity, this film goes beyond the athlete to explore Chris’s personal narrative. Amidst his astounding athletic accomplishments and intellectual disability, we uncover Chris’ greatest aspirations from homeownership to falling in love, drawing on points of relatability that resonate universally.

Chris is a source of inspiration, reminding us to pursue progress- no matter how incremental-and to relentlessly go after our dreams.

Screened as part of the Documentary Shorts 2 section.
