Blake Leeper loses prosthetic leg, still finishes second
Blake Leeper finished second to Jarryd Wallace in the 100m final at the U.S. Paralympic Trials in Charlotte on Saturday.
Leeper, running in lane five, lost his right prosthetic leg as he crossed the finish line in 11.09 seconds.
He was born without lower legs and has been using prosthetics since he was toddler. He was the silver medalist in the 2012 Paralympic 400m behind Oscar Pistorius.
Leeper recently returned to competition after serving a one-year ban for testing positive for cocaine.
