Still A Leg Up on the Competition
Despite having a transfemoral amputation, Jeff Quelet is still kicking the competition. Quelet, who was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at the age of nine, finished a sprint triathlon in Chambersburg, Pa. this past Sunday. He completed the course, which consisted of a 500-meter swim, a 16.1-mile bike ride and a 3.1-mile run, in 1:53. That was just a mere 20 minutes after 1st place in his age group.
Quelet is no stranger to confronting his physical challenges. He also is employed by Ability Prosthetics and Orthotics and his insight has helped his clients reassess their conditions.
