Chester Draper, who plays 2nd on Wayne Ficek's No. Ontario provincial championship team won the Manitoba men’s full wheelchair marathon with a time of 1:57:26 beating that benchmark 2 hour time that marks a great performance.

Congratulations Chester, who is 71 and lives in Dryden, ON. And no, he didn't use a souped-up power wheelchair.
