5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Soldier continues to break records

 

Written by Maj. Brandon Bissell
5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Public Affairs

5th Special ForcesClarksville, TN – Most people consider completing a half marathon or full marathon once in their lifetime a major achievement; and rightfully so.

In the case of Marc Dibernardo, a staff sergeant with the U.S. Army, competing in these events, in what most would consider extreme conditions, is a way to raise awareness and support to causes that are very dear to him – wounded warriors.

What is so extreme about the way he competes in races you may ask? Consider the fact that he races wearing either a gas mask or full military gear (including helmet, body armor, and boots). It is safe to say that either of these scenarios would cause significant impairments for the average racer.

Dibernardo has broken world records wearing both.

Although, not yet officially confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records, the finishing time was nine minutes faster than the record established by Guinness. In order to qualify for the record he had to complete the race in full military gear; including uniform, helmet, body armor, and boots. (Photo courtesy of Maj. Brandon Bissell)
