Clayton Treska had already gone through treatment for testicular cancer and been given a clean bill of health. While the 280 pound marine was training for the 70.3 in Hawaii, he could tell that his body was just not quite right. After being misdiagnosed numerous times, finally the doctors realized that the cancer was back and this time it was stage four, which meant it was terminal. During his treatment he dropped to 150 pounds but he never gave up hope that one day he would complete the 70.3. In June of 2010 he left the hospital and finished the 70.3, but that was only the beginning. In October he went back to Kona and finished the toughest day in sport, The Ford Ironman World Championship. Clayton Treska is a swimming, cycling and running miracle.
