Natalia Osipova, from the Wall Street Journal, traveled to Bethany to film Aaron Yoder who is receiving world recognition by running backwards. The head track and field coach and cross country coach set the world record for running a mile backward in 5 minutes 54.25 seconds.

“Bethany College is a place where dreams do come true if one is willing to work,” says Coach Yoder.  “I feel like our community fosters growth in our students and athletes, along with staff and faculty.  I am proud to be a Swede and an ambassador for the great town of Lindsborg.  It has been an incredible journey that I have been blessed to be a part of.”

Ms. Osipova is putting together the video portion of story and Gabrielle Steinhauser, based in South Africa, is writing the article portion of the story.
