Summer In 1991, at the International Moscow Marathon, she came directly from the hospital. She ran 10 km. This act shocked Dick Trawm, president of the New York Club for Disabled.

It's very inspiring to hear these people who strive hard to prove their capabilities. Even if they have these disabilities, they still manage to be excellent in different fields. Very touching and inspiring to know that they exist.
