Vote Kyle Maynard – Best Male Athlete With A Disability

When you think of the ESPY awards, you automatically think of the top athletes in the world like Lebron James, Novac Djokovic and Aaron Rodgers.

Each of these athletes inspire us with their drive, athleticism and perseverance in their respective sports.

Last week, Sports Networker’s CEO – Lewis Howes, met up with a man in New York that possesses all of these traits and then some.

ESPY Awards – Best Male Athlete With A Disability

Kyle Maynard is seeking to add “two-time ESPY winner” to his list of accomplishments (he won the award in 2004). Maynard managed to climb his way to Mt. Kilimanjaro’s peak, becoming the first quadruple amputee to get to the top without assistance.

If you are looking for your daily dose of inspiration, then make sure to check out the video below.  Here is my favorite quote from the video (9:03 mark) where Kyle talks about one of the lessons that the mountain taught him:

The most frustrated I got the whole day was when I looked up and saw how far I had to go, instead of looking back and seeing how far we had come.  I think I do that alot in life and in general.  Just one step at a time.

Those are solid words to live by! Let’s help Kyle win the Best Male Athlete With A Disability by casting your vote below!
