Sarah stepped onto the world stage after making sports history in one of the toughest endurance events in the world -- the Hawaii Ironman. This legendary race starts with a 2.4-mile swim (3.8km), continues with a 112-mile bike (180km), and culminates with a 26.2-mile run (42.2km), all in a single day. On 10/15/05, Sarah completed the Ironman World Championships in Kona in a very respectable time of 15 hours and 5 minutes, becoming the first woman to finish an Ironman on a prosthetic leg. A year later, she raced around the world on "The Amazing Race," the Emmy-award-winning CBS reality TV series.
Sarah`s story has been covered in many national newspapers and she has graced the covers of many magazines, including Runner`s World, ESPN, Triathlete, and Competitor. In 2009, GPP Life published her book, "In A Single Bound," an honest, touching and funny memoir about how a feisty, one-legged girl struggling to fit in with her two-legged friends grows up to become a world-class athlete and TV personality.
