Ms. Namita Nayyar: Who has been your greatest influencer and motivator in your success in the field of your career in competitive Paratriathlon?
Ms. Melissa Stockwell: After I lost my leg I felt very lucky to be alive and to still have the use of 3 other limbs. What keeps me going are those that gave everything, their lives, so I can still enjoy the freedoms that I do. When i am racing and am having a hard time, I think of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice and that keeps me going.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have co-found Dare2Tri paratriathlon club, through this you give other athletes with disabilities the chance to experience the thrill of a triathlon and realize what they are capable of. This endeavor has been dear to your heart, tell us how you have been able to achieve and quench your thirst of giving back to the society through this endeavor of your?
Ms. Melissa Stockwell: I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for a number of organizations that helped me out along the way. To be able to give back to other athletes with physical disabilities and help show them what they are capable of, is one of my greatest accomplishments. There is nothing quite like seeing an athlete with a disability that was unsure of their athlete ability get to that finish line of a triathlon. It truly is one person inspiring many.
