(WJHL) – A Kingsport Paralympian has been banned for a year for violating anti-doping rules.
I am extremely sorry for letting the members of my community and my family down. I take full responsibility for making some bad choices and allowing the wrong people to influence my life. I am looking forward to coming home to share my journey of overcoming the monumental obstacle of being born without legs and celebrating a Rocky type comeback at the Paralympics games in Rio. I plan setting the right example to our community by proving that that no dream is impossible with or without legs.”
