Daniel Romanchuk, 21, gears up for potentially historic New York City Marathon race


On Sunday, he will compete to become the first American man to win the NYC Marathon's wheelchair division two years in a row.


"I try not to concentrate really on those … It would be incredible to [win New York], but it's not necessarily a goal of mine," Romanchuk recently told ABC News.


He began with a slew of activities, including wheelchair basketball, swimming, archery, triathlon, skiing, table tennis, sled hockey, track and field.


"Daniel is on fire," Disabled Sports USA communications manager Shuan Butcher told ABC News after Romanchuk won Boston in April.


Daniel Romanchuk will also compete in Dubai for the 2019 World Para Athletics Championships, beginning on Nov. 7, and then Japan for another marathon after that.


And with or without the title of the first American man to win the men's wheelchair division two years in a row, Romanchuk is ready to keep going.
