An 18-year-old basketball player is fighting to stay in the game after initially being banned due to his prosthetic legs, according to Good Morning America.
High school senior Bailey Roby plays basketball while wearing “blade” prosthetics. The curved prosthetics were popularized by South African Olympic-sprinter Oscar Pistorius.
Roby, of Highlands Ranch, Colo., was born with fibular hemimelia, which meant he was born with no fibula bones in his legs. At six months old, his legs were amputated and he grew up using prosthetic legs, GMA reports.
