Within two years, his talent and extraordinary grit won out, and he was tagged by a world-record-holding coach as Paralympic sprinting's next champion.

From 1996 to 2008, Brian took home 32 gold medals and first-place finishes in major competitions, plus five world records.

He has spent the past 13 years working with prosthetic manufacturers to advance bionic technology by providing input to R&D teams and fine tuning the devices in the market place. As a certified Prosthetist, he even fit Oscar Pistorius with his running blades, which he then used to break Brian's own world record.
