Publisher's Summary

Tony Volpentest was born without hands and feet, a condition so rare it does not have a name. Doctors said he would never be able to walk without prosthetics or special accommodations. Tony proved them all wrong when he started walking at 15 months old and went on to do everything any other kid could do: ride a bike, play basketball, and learn to write. In high school, he took up the least likely sport for someone without feet - track. Through sheer will, determination, and perseverance, he went from last place in every race to the pinnacle of his sport, becoming a Paralympic gold medalist and world-record holder, a tour de force who dominated the sprint distances. Tony's incredible story is more than one about sports. It is about the potential of the human spirit to reach places we never thought possible. It is about finding the gifts in life's inevitable roadblocks.
