Meet One Of The Best Wheelchair Racers In America

Filed under: ZportzInspirationFitness

So inspiring!

Despite not having ANY core muscles and very little use of his triceps, quadriplegic wheelchair racer Scott Stokes has become the best American competitor in his division.

He wrestled, played football, and baseball throughout his childhood and dreamed of making into the pro's until a terrible fall left him with no use of his legs 13 years ago.

His dreams of professional baseball or football may have been crushed in the fall, but his passion for athletics led him to discover a new sport.

Wheelchair racing is unimaginably tough and Scott almost quit after the first time he pushed his wheels for a full mile, but he stuck with it and at 33-years-old, has become one of the best.

Check out the video above for a glimpse of Scott's incredible journey to overcome a disability and rise to the cream of the crop in his sport!
