Learn more about the elite wheelchair racers competing at the 2019 Chicago Marathon.

Daniel Romanchuk seized his first AbbottWMM win in Chicago last fall and he has been invincible ever since.

Name: Daniel Romanchuk 

Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Standout Race: 

He finished 2018 by becoming the first American male and the youngest athlete to win the wheelchair competition at the TCS New York City Marathon, and he welcomed 2019 with a runner-up finish in Tokyo and a pair of crowns at both the Boston and London marathons. His Boston win came with an added bonus: a new PR, 1:21:36. The London Marathon also doubled as the World Para-athletics Marathon Championships so Romanchuk added “marathon world champion” to his long list of accomplishments.
