Congratulations to the winners of Monday’s Boston Marathon, but we’d like to give a special thanks to WBZ sports producer Scott Sullivan, who used his twitter feed to highlight some other outstanding performances of today’s race.

Sullivan’s own candidate for video of the day shows runner Earl Granville on a prosthetic leg pause long enough to pick up his guide and carry her across the finish line.

WCBV reports:

Earl Granville is a nine-year-veteran who lost part of leg in the summer of 2008 when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Following his injury, Granville competed in multiple marathons, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, and New York using a hand-bike.

On Monday, he took part in the marathon again, without a bike, and during his run, bystanders came up to him for hugs and thanked him. “I don’t know what they’re inspired about,” Granville said in a Facebook Live broadcast at mile 16. “I’m walking.”

Obviously we’ll miss plenty of heroes in this wrap-up, but here are some more whom Sullivan featured.
