Brit triple-amputee paratrooper to take part in Washington marathon
London, Oct 25(ANI): A British paratrooper who lost both legs and an arm fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, will defy his injuries to take part in Marine Corp Marathon in Washington next Sunday.
Lance Corporal Tom Neathway will run 26.2 miles through the streets of Washington on his prosthetic legs, the Sun reports.
The 26-year-old, along with four other troopers, will raise cash for the Parachute Regiment's own charity to help injured troops.
Neathway, a member of 2 Para, was hurt when a roadside booby trap exploded in July 2008.
The soldier has since done five tandem parachute jumps, but rates the marathon as his greatest challenge. (ANI)
