Teen with Cerebral Palsy finishes Ironman Boulder

At the June 12 Ironman in Boulder, CO, the cheers at the finish line rose as James Banks (18) crossed the line. James has cerebral palsy and scoliosis. Assisted by his “wingman,” David Slomkowski (48), Banks was pulled and pushed in a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a marathon run (26.2 miles) over the course of 15 hours and 45 minutes. The two competitors met through Slomkowski’s Baltimore-based non-profit, Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA), which was designed to give individuals with disabilities the thrill of athletic competition. Whizzing along in a bike at 30 mph and floating on a raft in open water are dangerous facets of the race that excite Banks. For Slomkowski, it was a “dream come true” to give one of ASA’s first athletes the Ironman experience.
