Join us for an engaging conversation with Bob Babbitt and Mark Barr.
Mark Barr lost his right leg as a teenager due to bone cancer. Barr competed in swimming at the Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. During this time, he was also an NCAA Division I swimmer for California Polytechnic State University from 2004-08.
After college, he still had an interest in swimming but wanted to try something new so he decided to transition to triathlon. After being one the first athletes to attend CAF’s paratriathlon clinics early on, Mark has gone on to make a competitive career in paratriathlon including the 2019 Paralympic Games in Rio, 2018 ITU PTS2 World Champion (with an undefeated season), named 2018 USA Triathlon Male Paratriathlete of the Year and awarded the 2019 ESPY for Best Male Athlete with a Disability.
