ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Our Sean Daly spent Saturday morning exploring the epicenter of this weekend's St. Anthony's Triathlon.
Thousands of athletes from all over the world converge at downtown St. Petersburg for this event.
Saturday was the "Meek and Mighty" Triathlon, the mini-version of what Sunday's race holds.
Kids as young as five and adults well into their 80s are throwing their hats into the ring for this race.
Sunday is when things get serious. World class athletes compete in a swim, bike, run that pushes them to their athletic limits.
Saturday, Sean met one of those racers who takes competitiveness to the next level.
Rajesh Durbal is a triple amputee, but that doesn't stop him.
