In Memory of Jim MacLaren

Jim MacLaren, who at one time was the world’s fastest amputee triathlete, passed away Monday evening August 30th. His life was short but amazingly impactful. After getting hit by a New York City bus while on his motorcycle back in 1985 and having his lower leg amputated below the knee , the former Yale football player reinvented himself and became the Babe Ruth of amputee athletes, running a 3:16 marathon and going 10:42 at the Ironman in Kona, Hawaii.
