Dallas Seavey became the youngest winner ever of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Tuesday.

Seavey, who turned 25 during this year’s race, was the first musher to reach Nome, arriving in the Bering Sea coastal community at 7:29 p.m. local time Tuesday.

The previous youngest winner was Rick Swenson, the race’s only five-time champion, who won his first title in 1977 at age 26. Swenson, now 61, is running in the middle of the pack this year.
