Paralyzed Man Finishes Marathon!

Adam Gorlitsky is paralyzed from the waist down, but that didn’t stop him from competing in the 2020 Charleston Marathon -- and beating the world record for the fastest time to finish a marathon in an exoskeleton suit.

Adam completed the 26.2-mile race with a time of 33 hours, 50 minutes and 23 seconds, nearly three hours faster than the previous record holder.

He started walking the race on a Thursday night and finished on a Saturday morning, without taking any breaks for sleep.

Not surprisingly, Adam was sleep-deprived, shivering and exhausted when he crossed the finish line. But he says the encouragement from his supporters kept him going mile after mile. (Moultrie News)
