We are proud to present Paralympic Athlete, Ironman, and Paratriathlon American Champion Mohamed Lahna. Born in Casablanca Morrocco, Mohamed was born with a birth defect called Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency that effectively left him without a right femur and fibula.  Mohamed embodies the saying, “It’s never too late.” He was fit with his first real prosthesis at the age of 20, rode a bike for the first time at 25, crossed the Atlas Mountains at 26, and ran his first marathon at 27.   Mohamed has officially qualified for the Paralympics in Paris 2024, making him the first male Para triathlete to make Team USA.  The AMP’D UP211 Video Podcast is hosted by Rick Bontkowski, a right-below-knee amputee.
