Jerome Singleton: World’s Fastest Amputee

He was a fine athlete before he lost his right leg below the knee, and now he’s an even finer one: Jerome Singleton raced past  the reigning champion, South Africa’s  Oscar Pistorius, to win gold in the men's 100-meter at the 2011 IPC Athletics World Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand. An equally determined student, Singleton double-majored in mathematics and applied physics before transferring to the University of Michigan to complete his dual degree with Morehouse -- adding an industrial engineering degree to his studies.
