Ironman and Inspirational Speaker Scott Rigsby Visits Country Day

On October 26th, Ironman and inspirational speaker Scott Rigsby visited Country Day and spoke with students in a school-wide assembly. Students learned that Rigsby, a double amputee, has come back through immense challenges and setbacks to become a world-class athlete, completing 13 triathlons and 5 road races and setting world records for a double below-the-knee amputee in the Full Marathon, Half Ironman, and International Distance Triathlon. His incredible athletic ability earned him a spot on the 2006 USA Triathlon Team and now he travels the country as a motivational speaker.
