Tatyana Wins Silver

Wheelchair athlete Tatyana McFadden did well in Beijing, according to the Sun/Flier's Explore Howard blog:

Four days after starting the 2008 Paralympics with a sixth-place finish in the T54 100-meter wheelchair final, the Clarksville resident regrouped to earn a pair of silver medals on Sept. 14, her final day of her individual competition.

The two-second place efforts, which came in the T54 200m and 800m events, gave her a total of three silver medals over the course of the week. She had already placed second in the 400m race on Sept. 12 with a personal best time of 53.49 seconds.
