Could YOU Play Tennis From a Wheelchair? These Are Amazing Athletes! [VIDEO]
Talk about overcoming adversity and obstacles! A group of Idaho athletes have proven you can do just about anything despite being in a wheelchair.
KTVB Television profiled a trio of Treasure Valley athletes who recently competed in a wheelchair tennis tournament in Portland. Randy Corbett, Steve Baxter, and Makenzie Ellsworth are athletes who compete in the Idaho Wheelchair Tennis Association. Corbett, who founded the group, is ranked 9th in the nation among such players.
He was injured 23 years ago in a motorcycle accident, losing his ability to walk. Baxter was injured in a fall from a trampoline. But these athletes have shown if you have determination and drive you can perform and compete in just about anything.
And by the way, they call themselves the “Ability” team because they have no time or room for “dis” in their lives. That’s positive thinking!
