Well being healthy means a lot for me I think it’s an especially important for somebody living with a disability to live a healthy active lifestyle and the reason for that if you just think about the day-to-day living on two artificial legs for me somebody else might be in a wheelchair but it seems to me like if you’re in shape and if you’re a strong fit human being your life is gonna be a lot easier to get around and move that wheelchair and walk on prosthetic legs getting involved in Paralympic sport has been everything for me with being healthy especially playing a team sport knowing that I have teammates that rely on me to be good and knowing that that we rely on each other to be successful win gold medals you owe it to the guys in the room and you owe it to the people around you to wake up and be active and commit like they are I don’t have to look very far for motivation I’m surrounded by my amazing people who have been through adversity and overcome it and come through the other side a better person you can learn perseverance and courage and all these things and and and I think that’s that’s kind of what being an athlete is about is taking all these things that you don’t know if you have and challenging yourself and then at the end of the day you get to look in the mirror and really find out if you accomplish what you want to do and if you’re really the person you thought you were so for me
