Jarryd Wallace is a US track athlete. In July 2013 he broke the world record in the 200m T44 race with a time of 22.08.
Wallace, an accomplished 800m runner who had just signed for the University of Georgia, suffered complications during surgery to repair a running injury. It resulted in him losing 60 per cent of muscle from the knee down. Faced with excruciating pain he took the difficult decision to have his leg amputated.
