Minda Dentler added her name to the Ironman World Championship history books on October 12, 2013 with her 14:39:14 finish in Kona, becoming the first official woman handcyclist to complete this event.  Only using her arms for 140.6 miles, Minda is also the only female paraplegic to complete two full-distance Ironman races. Minda’s legs are paralyzed due to contracting polio in India and she eventually started to participate in athletics as an adult.
