Lex Gillette, USATF, 4x Paralympic Silver Medalist

Lex joins the show to tell us about his life in the world of track and field! He lost his vision at 8 years old and had a hard time coping with it from a young age. He was able to find mentors and others who believed in him and his capabilities to the point for bringing him around the country to compete while still in high school.

Lex has gone on to compete at 4 different Paralympic Games and has a great shot at making the 2021(!) Tokyo Games.

Michael Rasile has conversations with Olympic Athletes, Hopefuls, and Legends on their story and path to the games. From Gold Medal Winners to unfortunate injuries, for the amount of blood, sweat, and tears our athletes put in on a daily basis to be the best in the world, the least we can do is learn more about what they endure. Trials and tribulations, short comings and over coming the odds, these are the stories of Our Athletes from their mouth to your ears.DISCLAIMER: Our Athletes is not endorsed by or affiliated with the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee.
