Marathon Grand Slam
This past January, Impressions Incorporated sponsored the IPC World Cup in Cable, Wisconsin. Our President, Mike Jorgensen, was able to attend and cheer on the Paralympic athletes as they competed against some of the best athletes in the world in preparation for the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.
One of the athletes on the US CXC Skiing team was setting some history of her own this past weekend except it wasn’t in skiing, it was in a different sport. Tatyana McFadden finished the Grand Slam of marathon races when she crossed the finish line Sunday in New York. For Tatyana, winning the New York Marathon completed a sweep of the four major marathons (Boston, London, Chicago, New York) all within the same year, a truly amazing feat.
With such an amazing year so far, it will be fun to see what Tatyana can accomplish in Cross Country Skiing in the upcoming 2014 Paralympic games in Sochi, Russia.
