One of the elite athletes who crossed the finish line in the grueling Ironman Arizona last November is 49-year-old Audrey Glemba.

She's a medically-retired police officer who collects a worker's compensation check every month for an injury she said prevented her from doing her job.

A review of Glemba's records reveal she suffered a back and knee injury in 1995 during a training exercise with the Mesa Police Department.

A year later she was promoted to sergeant and in 2002 she became supervisor of the Dobson Bicycle Squad.

Sgt. Audrey Glemba put in for a medical retirement in 2008.

In the 14 years from her injury to her medical retirement, Glemba ran 29 races, including 10 triathlons, according to the website, a website that compiles results of such races.
