Muscular Dystrophy Was Not a Barrier for Maickel Melamed to Finish Boston Marathon

Fans and supporters waited for him at the finish line

The supporters of Melamed, particularly from Vamos, a Caracas-based organization, surrounded him as he was about to finish the race around 4:30 AM. He completed the marathon as the last runner. But, it was still an exciting race for him.

Volunteers, fans, and supporters witnessed how he completed the marathon. He struggled much due to the torrential downpours of rain all throughout the marathon. His difficulty in walking due to his muscular dystrophy was the main challenge for him to finish the race.
