Woman completes marathon sweep
American Tatyana McFadden has completed an unprecedented marathon "Grand Slam."
The 24-year-old Maryland resident won the New York City Marathon women’s wheelchair race Sunday after taking the titles in London, Boston and Chicago earlier in 2013. No other athlete has won those four races in the same year.
McFadden also was the 2010 champion in New York.
Born with a spinal defect and left at a Russian orphanage as a baby, McFadden was adopted by an American family and got into sports.
Marcel Hug of Switzerland won the men’s wheelchair race.
