Mount Airy's Daniel Romanchuk secures world title with men's wheelchair victory at London Marathon

Maryland native Daniel Romanchuk added another major title to his growing collection with a victory in the men's wheelchair race at the London Marathon on Sunday.

Romanchuk, who who grew up in Mount Airy and started training with an adaptive sports program in Baltimore at age 2, won titles in Chicago and New York last fall before securing a historic victory in Boston two weeks ago with the fastest time ever by an American.

He finished ahead of Switzerland's Marcel Hug on Sunday with a time of 1 hour, 33 minutes and 38 seconds. The race doubled up as the World Para Athletics Marathon Championships, meaning Romanchuk was also crowned world champion.
