Life does not give you obstacles without opportunities.

Luis' Story

Hello, my name is Luis Pablo Sepulveda, I am from Chile and this is my story. Due to Cancer (synovial sarcoma) in my right knee in March 2019 my right leg was amputated above the knee. At the end of April, I began to walk with my first prosthetic and in August of the same year, I started running with a running prosthetic.

I later bought running prosthetics on eBay, and I soon joined a team of parathletes in Chile. A company called CliefMedical saw my athletic and motivational potential and sponsored me for a pair of athletic prosthetics which are made for running, cycling, and climbing.

In November of that same year, I ran my first 100-meter race and got third place! This was my crowning achievement, for it catapulted me into the T63 category in racing and the long jump.

Now, I am dedicated to running marathons and I hope to run a duathlon in the future. I also participate in other sports such as cycling, skiing, paddling, bouldering, soccer, and skating!

That sums up my athletic life, but I do so much more. I work as the supervisor of operations in a mineral mine. I work for 7 days and then have another 7 days off, which lets me grow professionally and athletically. This also gives me time to spend with my family, specifically my wife Paula and my daughters Francisca and Josefa.

Life does not give you obstacles without opportunities. You must try your hardest and achieve all you can because life's too short to waste it.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
