Join us for an engaging conversation with Bob Babbitt and Jamie Whitmore.
Jamie was a professional mountain bike racer and went on to become the most successful female athlete in XTERRA triathlon history. In 2008, Whitmore learned that a lingering pain in her leg was actually cancer – a spindle cell sarcoma that had wrapped around her sciatic nerve. The next year Whitmore was in and out of the hospital with surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and infections that left her left leg without function.
Equipped with a prosthetic leg brace, Whitmore returned to cycling with the same drive to succeed. She currently holds several Paralympic national titles, an ESPY award, countless triathlon World Championships, and is on the path to the Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2021.
