From the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) dais direct to the London Marathon dais – Madison de Rozario has become the first Australian to take out the women’s elite wheelchair event at the London Marathon yesterday.

The gallant win comes just days after claiming gold in both the T54 1500m and the gruelling T54 Marathon at GC2018.

Her compatriot and mentor Kurt Fearnley who won gold in the GC2018 T54 Marathon came fifth in the men’s event,

“I feel very surprised still, it’s unreal, that was amazing,” said De Rozario.

“Just physically doing the 42km felt a lot easier after last weekend and knowing that my body is happy to do it.
