Tatyana McFad­den wins sil­ver in marathon

Baltimore Sun - - NFL -

Tatyana McFad­den, a wheel­chair racer from Clarksville who at­tended Atholton, won the sil­ver medal af­ter a photo fin­ish in the women’s marathon T54 on Sun­day, the fi­nal day of com­pe­ti­tion at the Par­a­lympics in Rio de Janeiro. McFad­den and China’s Li­hong Zou crossed the fin­ish line at the same Par­a­lympic record time of 1 hour, 38 min­utes and 44 sec­onds, but a photo re­view showed that Zou’s front wheel edged McFad­den’s. “We pulled a ma­jor­ity of the marathon, so I’m re­ally happy to come away with a sil­ver,” said McFad­den, a 16-time Par­a­lympic medal­ist. “I’ve worked re­ally, re­ally hard and it’s a great way to end the games.” McFad­den raced to her sixth medal — four gold and two sil­ver — of the games and tied for the most medals won by a U.S. ath­lete in Rio with swim­mer Jes­sica Long of Bal­ti­more, who won gold in the women’s SM8 200-me­ter in­di­vid­ual med­ley Satur­day night.
