The 2012 Sports Illustrated Kids SportsKids of the Year, brothers Conner and Cayden Long, were honored at a star-studded event in New York City last night. The Long brothers were part of the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year ceremony that recognized Miami Heat star LeBron James. Celebrities such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski were also in attendance, and everyone there was impressed by Conner’s and Cayden’s accomplishments.
Cayden, suffers from cerebral palsy, but Conner doesn’t let that stop him from playing sports with his brother. The two compete in triathlons together, with Conner towing Cayden behind in a raft during the swimming leg, towing him behind his bike during the cycling portion, and pushing him during the run. Triathlons have been a great way for the brothers to come together and have made them an inspiration to everyone that hears their story.
After hearing their story at the Sportsman ceremony, Coach K said that Conner and Cayden have scholarships to Duke waiting for them when they get older, and LeBron said that the brothers should get ready for the private plane that is going to take them from their home in Tennessee to Miami to “meet the guys.” Even Jay-Z and Beyoncé couldn’t wait to shake hands with Conner and Cayden.
