World Record holder Blake Leeper is a double amputee with a shot at the 2020 Olympic roster. No thats not a typo, we didn’t say Paralympic, he’s already won all the medals and smashed the records there. Blake wants to win gold at the Olympics and he’s not stopping until he gets it. Unfortunately Blakes quest has been stalled by what he calls racism in the Court of Appeals for Sports. You see the It ruled that World Athletics could stop him from competing since his prosthetic leges gave him an unfair advantage, making him taller than if he were born with legs. Problem with that ruling is the data used to get their findings was compiled from European and Asian men, not anyone of African decent. Blake has an amazing story and is one of the most positive people you could ever meet. Everyone could learn a thing or two from this sporting hero.
