Brian Frasure was 19 years old and attending NC State when an accident resulted in the amputation of part of his left leg. Instead of letting the injury defeat him, Frasure graduated in 1996 and became an elite Paralympic sprinter, winning a combined 55 medals (32 gold) and 5 world records. Now, Frasure is a certified prosthetist with iWalk, a company that helps veterans and other amputees regain mobility with bionic products.

Come hear him talk about his time at NC State and his remarkable career at this installment of NSCU Libraries’ Amazing Alumni series:
