Meet Joe Stone

Last week I had the chance to photograph Joe Stone for An Ironman’s Journey and Colle McVoy.  Joe was like anyone of us a few years ago, but after crashing while speed flying in Montana, was diagnosed as an incomplete C7 quadriplegic. What would I do if that happened to me was the question that kept arising in my mind while photographing him.  Joe didn’t give up or lose a beat.    With his hands strapped to special pedals to something similar to an upside down bicycle, rubber gloves for friction on his racing wheelchair and a special wetsuit to keep his legs contained and his body rigid, he has been training to become the first known wheelchair using quadriplegic to compete in a full Ironman triathlon.  Watch him this November the 2nd at Ironman Florida. Go and kick some ass Joe!
