KALAMAZOO (WKZO) – The most memorable for most standing at last year’s finish line at the Kalamazoo Marathon was when Nicole Clement came across with a winning time of 3:44:55 and collapsed just seconds later.
It was a scary moment for onlookers as the then 22-year-old was quickly shuttled off to the Red Cross medical area. Clement was unresponsive and unable to speak for about 20 minutes as medical attendants IV’ed her and laid her out on a stretcher.
Making a full recovery after about 30 minutes had passed; Clement spoke with WKZO about the emotion of winning the Kalamazoo Marathon. Watch above for the interview.
Clement is set to return to the Kalamazoo Marathon this year and the crowd will certainly be watching her almost daring drive as she strives for another title.
