USA's David Prince, a former drug dealer and dropout, inspired the world by winning bronze in the 400m T44 at London 2012 Paralympic Games.


At 17, Prince dropped out of high school and decided he'd make a living selling drugs. Then he crashed his motorcycle during a street race and his lower right leg was amputated.

Vowing to turn his life around, Prince, changed his ways and has trained to become one of the top Paralympic sprinters in the world.

Now a member of the IMG Academy training stable under the teaching of sprint coach great, Loren Segrave, Prince is addicted to training to be the best win gold in Rio at the 2016 Paralympic games.

On Saturday, April 7th, I have a chance to interview this amazing young man who wants nothing more than to have young people learn from his mistakes as well as his successes.  Please tune in and follow the show.
