One Venezuelan man did not let his disability stop him from crossing the finish line at the Chicago marathon, no matter how long it may have taken!
Meet Maickel Melamed.
The 38-year-old has muscular dystrophy and competed in Sunday's Chicago marathon.
He was the last athlete to finish the race and he did so early this morning with a final time of 16 hours and 46 minutes.
A crowd of approximately 100 supporters cheered him on as he finished the race.
Melamed says his message is simple, follow your dreams.
"what we learn this night and what my message is - if you dream it, make it happen. Because your life is the most beautiful thing that could happen to you. So make the best of it and share the best of it."
