Baltimore Sun - - NFL -

Tatyana McFad­den of Clarksville de­fended her ti­tle at the Chicago Marathon, beat­ing Switzer­land’s Manuela Schar by one sec­ond in 1 hour, 42 min­utes and 28 sec­onds for her sixth straight vic­tory and sev­enth win at the event, mak­ing her the most dec­o­rated cham­pion in race his­tory. McFad­den, an Atholton grad­u­ate who won four gold medals and two sil­vers at the Par­a­lympics in Rio de Janeiro last month, claimed her 19th World Marathon Ma­jors win to set her­self up for a record fourth straight grand slam if she wins in New York (in 2013, 2014 and 2015, she won four ma­jors in the same year: Bos­ton, Lon­don, Chicago and New York). For the fourth straight year, Schar fin­ished sec­ond to McFad­den. Three-time win­ner Amanda McGrory of Savoy, Ill., fin­ished third.
