The "Animal" Ironman Lanzarote 1999 finisher
The “Animal” Randy Caddel was the first Challenged Athlete there finished Ironman Lanzarote in 1999.
Randy will be remembered for his great and unique spirit, big smile and the disco dance.
Randy finishes 32 seconds before midnight.
On the 25th of February 2005 Caddell was riding on his hand-powered racing bicycle/wheelchair hybrid on the Queen Kaahumanu Highway in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, when a motorist attempting to make a left turn accidentally struck him with her minivan. He was not wearing a helmet, and died a few hours later in the hospital. Caddell is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Caddell, and his girlfriend, Carole Jean Bradburn. R.I.P. MY GOOD FRIEND.
