Lance Mackey wins Iditarod


March 17, 2010 — Lance Mackey becomes the first musher to win four consecutive Iditarod sled dog races.

It's arguably the world's most famous dog-racing event -- and on Tuesday, Lance Mackey won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race for the fourth consecutive time.

Mackey reached the Nome finish line with an official race time of eight days, 23 hours, 59 minutes and 9 seconds. It was the second fastest Iditarod time ever recorded.

'People are easy to judge and ... doubt somebody's ability, but the mind is a very powerful thing,' said Mackey after the race. 'I was taught even as a young boy, if you put your mind to something you can do anything you want.'

The race spans 1,850 kilometres of Alaskan trail between Anchorage and Nome. No other musher has ever won four consecutive Iditarod races.
