Hunter Woodhall Opening Doors for Disabled Athletes
Opening Doors For Disabled Athletes
At 11 months old, Woodhall had his legs amputated below the knee when his fibulas failed to develop. From a young age, he has been determined to compete and be viewed as a normal athlete without any special assistance. Two weeks before signing with the University of Arkansas, he broke the Utah state record in the 400-meter event in 46.56 seconds.
Woodhall views signing with Arkansas as his highest-achievement to date. He contemplated going pro, but believes that jumping to the NCAA stage will open the door for athletes with disabilities.
He will continue to run, but ultimately, wants people to live in a society in which individuals aren't putting so many limitations on each other.
