Unique journey to Tokyo
Born with both legs missing below the knee, Blake spent his young life focused on succeeding in sports and hasn’t slowed down since. Now with a lifetime of training and strengthening himself for speed, he’s ready to show the world what is possible with the right work ethic and perspective. Currently he’s still battling with the IOC for acceptance at the Olympics.

Shelby Houlihan

Why Shelby's partnered w/ Mendi
