You may remember Johnny Agar from the 2016 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
Agar, who was born with cerebral palsy, and his dad, former minor-league pitcher Jeff Agar, didn’t make the bike cutoff in Kona, but they’re still doing triathlons.
To motivate Johnny, his mom created a video of his training based off Michael Phelps‘ famous Under Armour ad from 2016.
The Agars are scheduled to compete in an Ironman 70.3 race in Florida this weekend, a qualifier for Kona.
Phelps got word of the video and reached Johnny by phone this week to wish him luck for the race.
