In 18th and 19th place – and just one second apart – father and son Martin and Rohn Buser crossed under Nome’s Burled Arch Thursday morning.
Rohn Buser finished in 18th place in Iditarod 2012 - just one second ahead of his father, former champion Martin Buser.
Minutes after crossing the finish line - one second apart - multiple-time champion Martin Buser (facing the camera) embraces his son, Rohn, who is not only a musher in the Iditarod but also named after one of its checkpoints.
Two generations of Buser mushers - Martin and his son, Rohn - share some time under the Burled Arch a few minutes after crossing the Iditarod finish line in Nome.
While its musher interviews with the press, one of the dogs from the Buser kennel curiously eyes the cameras pointed in its direction.
