Paralympic cyclist and blind multi-sport athlete Shawn Cheshire is now a Guinness World Record holder. This fearless woman completed the roundtrip trail crossing of the Grand Canyon (Rim to Rim to Rim) in 24 hours and 15 minutes. While her powerful conviction lead her to believe successful completion was inevitable the multisport athlete acknowledges the difficulty of the trip. “The challenge is that because I can’t see, I need to stay 100% alert to verbal instructions during this kind of trek. I can’t coast even for a moment. I did and twisted my ankle and tumbled, injuring my knee. Fortunately, it wasn’t too bad. I was able to finish,” stated Shawn Cheshire.
