ick Ekbatani grew up with the dream of being a football player. He never stopped pursuing what he aspired to be, however, life turned out to have a different path for him.

Nick Ekbatani did become a professional UCLA football player, until at the age of 27, he was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident that left him badly injured. Unfortunately, Nick lost his left leg below the knee and had to go through a tough transition.

Despite the tragedy, the former football player never gave up and kept pushing. He learned to walk with prosthesis, continued swimming, running and cycling, and even went on to complete a master's degree in business.

Eventually, Nick entered the Paralympics and proved everyone how he did not let what happened to him define him, he kept on pursuing his dreams and accomplish much more than he ever imagined he will.
