Blake Leeper is an unbelievable embodiment of the 5th Quest Belief: You can do anything you set your mind to, without limitation. Blake is one of the fastest runners in the world, a feat that’s astonishing in itself. But Blake has an extra hurdle to clear to sprint faster than his fellow athletes – he was born without legs.

He’s literally a bladerunner, but Blake’s mind is even sharper that his racing razors. Despite his nearly unheard-of condition, bilateral congenital below-the-knee amputees, Blake has cultivated an unflinching determination to become one of the world’s elite athletes. More specifically, he wants to be the fastest person on Earth… and believe it or not, he’s on the right track (and earning medals along the way). His success thus far is further proof that human potential is nearly limitless. Blake is a hybrid icon of our generation, an unprecedented success of prosthetics innovation and a testament of the human spirit.

Some of Blake’s most vivid prosthetic leg memories and mindset triggers actually come from middle school, so it’s immediately apparent how deeply rooted his ideals and ultimate ambitions are. When we talked about his motivational Middle School moments, reinforced by his fearless “Never Give Up” attitude, I got chills on set.

Blake’s pursuit to become the world’s fastest runner isn’t in a subcategory for the disabled. If he qualifies for the able-bodied Olympics in Rio this summer, he’ll have a shot at becoming the first paralympic athlete to ever win gold in standard Olympic competition. Imagine the history-making moment when he leaves those “able-bodied competitors” lacing their shoes in his dust.
