We have seen many greats in the world of sports. Michael Jordan ruled the world of basketball and is considered the greatest there. When it comes to baseball, you’ll hear names like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Mickey Mantle. When it comes to the world of T54, you have Tatyana McFadden, a young lady who has beat all the odds and puts her whole heart into every race. Needless to say, the young woman has made quite the name for herself. Tatyana McFadden is nothing short of a superstar. In what can only be called the beginning of a very long career, McFadden has already taken home 17 Paralympic medals in a handful of Summer Paralympic Games. She has done more in the sport of T54 than any other athlete you can name. Tatyana is one in many who have started from the bottom and have worked their way to the top. Although her life makes a rags to riches story that has a special twist. Today she is considered the best amongst her Paralympic peers. Sadly, there was a point when Tatyana was living a life that was the complete opposite of the one she has now. The American champion came from a situation far different from her present life. She wasn’t always living amongst the glamour and the glory, in fact, she had to overcome all the odds to get there. This is the complete Tatyana McFadden story.
