STAMFORD — About four years ago, Roman “Rome” Leykin lost both of his legs above the knee in a subway accident.

This weekend, the Stamford resident will participate in two races.

Saturday was the Gaylord Gauntlet at Gaylord Specialty Healthcare’s campus in Wallingford, where Leykin faced two dozen obstacles along a course slightly longer than a 5K.

“Bring it on. I can’t wait,” Leykin said in an interview earlier in the week, adding that he was looking forward to the challenge.
