Former team captain of the UNH football team, Muji Karim was given a 10 percent chance to live after a car accident in 2011. As a result, he lost both of his legs from the knee down, and doctors weren’t sure if he would be able to walk again. Now, not only is Muji walking but he has his sights set on something much bigger.
Currently Muji is only a few seconds off the qualifying time in his pursuit of Olympic hardware. Also, he still must be selected by the committee in order to run in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, which he says shouldn’t be a problem at all.
