Man With Muscular Dystrophy Finishes Marathon

Share this post

The Chicago Marathon started Sunday morning, but for one runner it didn't finish until early today. 38 year old Venezuelan Maickel Melamed crossed the finished line in Chicago around 1:30 in the morning, guided by the cheers of dozens of people. Melamed suffers from muscular dystrophy. He finished the 26.2 mile race in 16 hours a 46 minutes. The time wasn't officially recorded, as the time mats had already been taken down. He has previously run marathons in New York and Berlin.
