American McFadden completes marathon 'Grand Slam'

NEW YORK (AP) - 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 Boston, London and Chicago 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 involved in swimming, basketball and track. She's a senior at the University of Illinois.

 

Marcel Hug of Switzerland won the men's wheelchair race on Sunday.
