Sports Illustrated has a feature on Ryan Reed, who won at Daytona last weekend. The headline calls his victory a win for all diabetic athletes.
Here’s how he described getting diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes four years ago:
“I felt really confused and lost,” Reed told SI.com in July. “Here was this disease that I didn’t understand and didn’t know anything about, and they were telling me I wasn’t going to be able to do what I wanted to do.”
