Imagine you're 8 years old slowly losing your eyesight, while many of your friends could be seen riding bicycles, shooting baskets, or frolicking on nearby playgrounds.
Lex Gillette is the best totally blind long and triple jumper in the history of the U.S. Paralympic movement. He is the current world record holder in long jump, a four-time Paralympic medalist, a three-time long jump world champion, and an 18-time national champion. He is an athlete, motivational speaker, and singer song writer.
Lex shares his best advice and lessons "No need for sight, when you have a vision", on courage in the face of extreme adversity, motivation, optimism, being black while blind and many more inspiring life lessons.
Would love to hear what you think.
