Blake has overcome an incredible amount of adversity in his life, yet he is still one of the most positive people you’ll ever meet. Blake describes himself as a fighter and inspires others on and off the track with his infectious smile and “why not me?” attitude. He is an eight-time Paralympian Track and Field international medalist and a world and American record holder. He is also a father, a motivational speaker, and a role model. (You may have seen him in a recent viral video inspiring a young boy walking in prosthetics for the first time. Talk about #lifepoints!) Blake’s commitment, passion, and love for the sport shines in everything he does. He is an athlete who has found deep meaning in his sport and has committed himself to helping others find their “why” as well. We are honored to help Blake fuel himself in order to achieve his athletic and life goals as he sprints towards the Olympic Games.
