Updated: Jun 19, 2019
There are amazing parasports and paralympic athletes out there. This is Parasports World's highlight of the week ...
Our Highlight of the Week goes to Marcel Hug and Manuela Schär who made it a Swiss clean sweep at the New York City Marathon. Schär beat long time rival Tatyana McFadden in a time of 1 hour, 48 minutes, 9 seconds to take the Women's crown.
While Marcel Hug picked up his third New York title in a time of 1:37:21, a full two minutes of second placed Josh Cassidy of Canada. The pair made history, this was the first time the men and women's event was won by the same nationality. Well worthy of our Highlight of the Week!! Congratulations to all our Swiss friends!!
