He finished the New York marathon in 7 hours 50 minutes:

It’s a big challenge that I could accomplish with persistence, perseverance, and insistence to achieve the goal.  I feel happy to have shown that disabled people can really participate like able-bodied people even in the most challenging events, with success.

I am really inspired by older people I have met, who completed the marathon. I never could have believed they would be able to do it.
