John Register is an overcomer who continues to make a global impact. He is a Gulf War Army Veteran, a 4-time track and field all American, and a two-time Olympic trials qualifier.
However, one misstep in life cost him his leg and ended both his Olympic dreams and military career.
Since his injury he won the long jump silver medal in Sydney, Australia, advised four U.S. Secretaries of State, and founded the United States Olympic Committee’s Paralympic Military Sports program which helped wounded, ill and injured service members use sports as a tool for their rehabilitation.
Thank you, John, for having the courage to be vulnerable to share your powerful story about fear, resiliency, identity, empowerment, and love.
