Limitless Potential

August 16, 2011

In 1991, Jason Wenning at age 16, set the first of his six world records in disabled swimming. He was born with multiple birth defects and doctors amputated his feet in childhood leaving him with stumps just below the knees.

When asked why he does it, he said,

“For the simple pleasure of forcing the body and mind I was given to the absolute edge of my capabilities. And when I do, I get for just a moment a vision of the limitless potential of the human race.”
