Wade Mongta finishes the NY Marathon


Wade Mongta from Bodalla has finished the New York City Marathon in 4 hours, 18 minutes and 58 seconds. Wade was chosen by the Indigenous Marathon Foundation to represent Indigenous Australia in the race. Wade’s heritage is with the Ngariga tribe and lives in Bodalla, NSW. Wade lives is a community where violence and drug abuse is common, and he is determined to use Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMP) to show people a different life and demonstrate that if you apply yourself you can achieve incredible things. He is extremely driven and very committed to training. IMP has been Wade’s target for the last few years and his determination is unquestionable, clocking up 20km training runs in the lead up to the IMP trials. Wade is the first person in his family to reach year 12 and puts reading the dictionary among his hobbies; again, with one goal in mind. “I had to come down here (to the trials) and be articulate, be formal not informal,” he said. He has harboured a burning ambition to succeed at the top level since he was a child, wanting to run for Australia since he was five years old. Wade believes that your past can make or break you and his past is what has made him. Source Congratulations Wade !!
