Bilateral Amputee Marko Cheseto Sets World Marathon Record

We are very proud of Marko Cheseto – a great athlete and even greater man!  He ran the TCS New York marathon and  set  a new record for bilateral (double) below knee amputees  – 2 hours, 52 minutes, 33 seconds.  And that was his first marathon!  Then Marko returned home to Orlando and became a U.S. citizen the next day. What an amazing week!
