Hunter was born with a congenital defect called fibular hemimelia in which the fibulas in his lower legs never formed. Both legs were amputated below the knee at 11-months-old. They told him he would never walk so he learned to run instead.
Hunter Woodhall went on to make history as the first double amputee to earn an NCAA Division I scholarship in track and field. He’s now a 3 time NCAA All American, a two-time Paralympic medalist and continues to chase his athletic dreams while attending the University of Arkansas.
This August he’s headed to Tokyo!
