Their Paralympic Journey

When David Brown was 15 months old, he was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, which ultimately led to him losing his ability to see at the age of 13. After moving to St. Louis from Kansas City to attend the Missouri School for the Blind, Brown took up wrestling and goalball before focusing on track. He first realized his dream of being a Paralympian after winning an essay contest to attend the Paralympic Games Beijing 2008 in China.

Since earning a spot on the 2012 U.S. Paralympic Team, Brown has become the fastest totally visually impaired athlete in the world alongside his sighted guide Jerome Avery. Training together in California, David and Jerome push each other to be the best they can be. As a team, they know having a clear goal is the best way to achieve what they want. After back-to-back successes in the last Paralympic Games, David and Jerome are focused on staying positive and keeping their underdog mindset.

“The style fits my personality perfectly. I like the muscle car body style; I like the sporty look of it.” — Jerome
