McFadden dominates in Rio

Tatyana McFadden has been a force to be reckoned with in wheelchair racing ever since she won three gold medals at London 2012.

And at Rio 2016, the American athlete was looking to cement her legendary status further by racing in seven events.

McFadden knew from the onset that she would not disappoint, and she delivered a breathtaking display to clinch six medals - four golds (400m, 800m, 1,500m, 5,000m T54), and two silvers (100m, marathon).
