Blake Leeper Biography

Blake Leeper was born in Kingsport, Tennessee, with both legs missing below the knee and has worn prosthetics since nine months of age. In his childhood, Leeper participated in various sports with his dad’s coaching, including baseball and basketball. He credits his outstanding positive attitude to his family.

Leeper made his international debut in 2009 at Rio de Janeiro. In 2011 he won a silver medal in the World Championships 4 × 100-meter Relay. In the 2012 Paralympic Games, he won an individual silver medal in the 400-meter T44 event and a bronze medal in the 200-meter. Leeper made history by becoming the first double-leg amputee to compete at the USATF National championships. After qualifying for semifinals with a time of 45.52 seconds in the 400-meter, Leeper was able to break Oscar Pistorius' world record in the event with a time of 45.25 seconds the next day. In 2018 he shattered his own word record running a time of 44.42 secs becoming the first ever amputee to run under 45 seconds.

In 2019 he broke another World Record in the 400-meter with a time of 44.38 seconds at the USATF National Championships, making history again by being the first amputee ever qualifying for the national team and world championships. Leeper ran the 6th fastest time in the world in 2022, including able bodied runners.
