Clarksville resident Tatyana McFadden set a course record and defended her London Marathon title in the women's wheelchair race Sunday. With a time of 1 hour, 45 minutes and 12 seconds, McFadden beat Manuela Schar of Switzerland by more than a minute and a half. The win comes just a month after she won her first medal in the Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia, earning silver in the 1-kilometer cross-country sitting-ski sprint event. “I was nervous, but I was not in my chair for three weeks,” McFadden told website Inside the Games. “It was a tough race, but I stayed calm and relaxed and I tried to use the downhills as much as I could.” Last year, she became the first athlete with four major marathon wins in a calendar year.
