Eric McElvenny lost his leg below the knee to an IED in Afghanistan in December of 2011. Within 60 days of the explosion he was being fitted for a prosthetic leg and within one year he had completed three triathlons. He is also a Pittsburgh native, a huge Steeler fan, and he is now part of the Refuel Got Chocolate Milk Become One Program, training and racing with Steeler legend Hines Ward. They raced together for the first time at the Super Seal Triathlon in Coronado and step one was a huge success!
