More About Daniel Romanchuk

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.

Most recently, he won the bronze medal in the marathon at the Tokyo Paralympics.

Romanchuk competed in five events at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games; his best finish was seventh in the 800m.
