Scaroni sets Bloomsday record


Susannah Scaroni set a new elite wheelchair record at Bloomsday Sunday, May 5, with a time of 29 minutes, 58 seconds for the 8-mile course.

Scaroni, 28, originally from Tekoa, won her fifth Bloomsday. Her previous best time was 30:51 in 2015.

Her new course record edged out a time of 30:42 by Tatyana McFadden. Earlier this year, Scaroni took fifth in the Boston Marathon after finishing out of contention in the London Marathon, during which she got a flat tire on her wheelchair.

Scaroni also competed in the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics.
