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.
