2016 Paralympcs in RIO

My name is Marko Cheseto Lemtukei, I currently live in Anchorage Alaska. I came to Alaska in August 2008 on a student visa as a student athlete from Kenya. In 2011 I lost my feet due severe frostbite that lead to amputation of both my feet below the knee.  Ossur, a prosthetic device company donated running feet to me. I got them in May of 2014 and I have run good times in 200m and 400m 23 sec and 50 sec respectively. The link above is a 14 minute video clip that was done be ESPN that explains more on my situation. I am currently finishing my masters in Engineering and Science Management at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Thank you very much for your time. #One tree cannot make a forest.
