Eight-time Paralympic medalist Blake Leeper aims to compete in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The double-amputee traveled to CU Boulder for evaluation by CU scientist Alena Grabowski (Kines’98; PhD’07). She has helped some of the world’s most famous amputee-athletes establish eligibility for contests against athletes with natural legs. Amputees often must prove their prosthetics give no advantage.
Here Leeper is pictured at Balch Fieldhouse on campus.
