Leaders reach for Rio gold as Wheelchair Series resumes

Wheelchair racers Marcel Hug (SUI) and Tatyana McFadden (USA) will be looking to tighten their grip on the Abbott World Marathon Majors leaderboards when Series X resumes at the Paralympic Games in Rio on Sunday September 18.

The pair dominated the first two races in the inaugural wheelchair series, both athletes winning twice in the space of six days at the Boston Marathon and the Virgin Money London Marathon this April.

With a maximum 50 points apiece, they top their respective standings - Hug enjoys a 25-point lead in the men's contest while McFadden has a cushion of 18 in the women's.

The racers must accumulate points from five of the eight races that make up the one-year global competition with a winner-takes-all prize of US$50,000 for the award for the top man and woman overall.
