Triathlete with Autism Competes in NYC Triathlon

Tremendous story about a teen with autism from Ocala, Fla., who competed in Sunday's Triathlon in New York City.

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- When the starting gun sounded, Ocala's Robbie Phillips was alongside his father, Bob, and 3,400 other top-notch athletes at the ninth annual Nautica New York City Triathlon.
Making it to this premiere sporting event, which featured competitors from all 50 states and 20 nations, was a major feat in itself for any athlete. For 18-year-old Robbie, who has autism, it has been a special journey.
