Sarah Reinertsen was the first woman on a prosthetic leg to complete the grueling Hawaii Ironman Triathlon. Since losing her leg because of a bone-growth disorder, she has gone on to set world records in track and compete in the world's toughest marathons and triathlons.
Sarah's success includes an appearance on "The Amazing Race", on the cover of ESPN's Body Issue, and an inspirational book, "In a Single Bound: Losing My Leg, Finding Myself, and Training for Life". She recently worked with Nike to develop the first removable running sole for prosthetic blades.
Sarah will talk about the future of prosthetics for athletes and other active people, along with how the profile of amputee athletes has never been higher.
