Joel Rosenbum is just one of many athletes that will compete in  USA Paratriathlon National Championships in conjunction with the Life Time Tri CapTex on Monday, May 27 at Auditorium Shores.

Rosinbum (32) paralyzed his right arm in a ski accident in 2007. The accident left Rosinbum, a college athlete, frustrated and depressed. Focusing on the competitive opportunities available to him through paratriathlons saved him. “It really is a story of perseverance and adapting to things and finding ways to make things work,” Rosinbum said.
Rosinbum, nick named the “Left Arm Bandit,” has enough grip strength to control the bike but uses only one arm to swim and wears a sling to control his left arm while running.
 
Volunteers are still needed for Monday's race.  You can got to www.captextri.com for more information.
