Tatyana McFadden Completes 2nd Marathon Grand Slam

Tatyana McFadden wins the women's wheelchair race at the New York City Marathon on Sunday to complete her second straight marathon grand slam.

She also won London, Boston and Chicago this year. The 25-year-old hasn't lost a marathon she's entered since 2012 and finished New York in an unofficial time of 1 hour, 42 minutes, 16 seconds.

McFadden competed in the Sochi Paralympic Games last winter and finished fifth in cross-country skiing. She's won 10 medals from the last three Summer Paralympic Games.

Kurt Fearnley won the men's wheelchair race, pulling ahead in the final 200 meters to finish in 1:30.55, unofficially. Four men finished within three seconds of Fearnley, who won four straight New York Marathon's from 2006-09.
