Tony's story is a testimony to what is possible after minimally invasive spine surgery.
Tony’s post-surgery accomplishments include:
- Completing The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon – placing 139 out of 2,000 – six months to the day after surgery.
- Completing his second Trans-Tahoe Relay swim as part of a six-man team that swam 11.5 miles across Lake Tahoe – without wetsuits!
- Swimming the Bridge to Bridge 10k – a San Francisco open-water swim for a small group of elite swimmers – and placing first.
- Celebrating his 32nd birthday doing the Maui Channel Swim.
