David "Dave" and Connor O'Leary are a father and son who competed on The Amazing Race 22. They are both from Salt Lake City, Utah. During a race to the Pit Stop on leg 2, Dave exerted himself too much during the run and tore his Achilles tendon. The two continued in the race, with Dave utilizing a glass medical boot and crutches. They were forced to withdraw during leg 5 so that Dave could have surgery, resulting in an 8th place finish. They were also the first team to receive the bonus, second Express Pass from another team, as Jessica & John gave it to them at the beginning of leg 3. After surgery, he was able to make it to the finish line and was in rehab for a year. After their unfortunate withdrawal, they were invited to return for The Amazing Race 24. Now on two working legs, Dave and his son were able to run a very powerful race and became the ultimate winners, finishing in 1st after three previous first-place finishes in a row. Dave was also the oldest person to win The Amazing Race at the time, at the age of 59.
