US Athletes With Disabilities showed their strengths at the 2018 NYC Marathon on November 4th. For those not familiar with the race, or the entry process, AWD (Athletes With Disabilities) is a non-guaranteed entry unless you meet specific eligibility requirements such as being a member of the NY Road Runners Club and Achilles International or part of a team such as Team CAF (Challenged Athlete Foundation).
This years athletes included Daniel Romanchuk, born with spina bifida and finding his strengths in athletics. Daniel made history in the men’s wheelchair race by not only being the youngest ever (20 years old) winner in the men’s wheelchair division history, but by also being the first American ever to claim the men’s wheelchair division title.
