Breaking Records in Boston

Yesterday marked the 113th annual Boston Marathon and it was a beautiful day for a run. The marathon isn’t only about the runners though. Before the start of the road race, the Boston Marathon also hosts the men’s and women’s wheelchair division of the race which travels on the same path as the runners – including Boston‘s infamous Heartbreak Hill. Imagine the arm strength it must take to make that climb! This year, none other than a South African was breaking records in Boston in the men’s wheelchair division. Ernst Van Dyk, who lives near Stellenbosch, South Africa, won his ninth Boston Marathon this year. Along with his impressive accomplishments on the road, Van Dyk studied Sports Science at the Stellenbosch University, one of interstudy‘s many program sites in South Africa.
