Vance Walker- From Cerebral Palsy To Elite Athlete

Vance Walker recently was the top finisher at the American Ninja Warrior finals, beating 7 other incredible athletes. He was only one of three people in 15 seasons to win the prize for finishing stage 4 in a fast enough time. His story is recounted here. I have been a fan of the show for all the seasons: Not only does it showcase amazingly talented athletes, but it gives background clips on the competitors. These are often moving stories of overcoming adversity, and Vance is no exception. As a child he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and doctors doubted he would ever walk, let alone participate in sports. At 18 he has proven them wrong. He has to diligently stretch before competing because of residual effects of his condition. But he has not let that stop him.
