The New York City Marathon is one of the most notable, if not the largest, long-distance races, not only in the United States but in the world.
Held annually on the streets of New York, the 26,219 race gathers tens of thousands of participants from around the world. But the 2021 version is even more remarkable when among the 33,000 athletes competing, there was a duck. Yes, you read it well… a very spirited duck named Wrinkle!
Even so, perfectly equipped with a pair of red running shoes, the white duck did an excellent job. And the current viral videos of her competing among other athletes on the streets of NYC represent that. After all, Wrinkle may not get herself a single medal, but she has become an internet star, and her parents are very proud of her performance.
The parents, artists Justin Wood and Joyce Kung, wrote online: “The wrinkly duck is more than just a pretty Pekin duck.” She is a fully -grown human child. She is fast. She is speed. She is zoom. She is Wrinkle. Still as fast as a duck boiii”.
The infamous presence of wrinkles was announced on her Instagram account. “I ran the NY marathon!” “Wrinkle” wrote. “I will get even better next year! Thanks to all the humans that were cheering for me!”
