Jamie Brown is an American Triathlete.
Jamie was born with Fibular Hemimilia.

Jamie Brown is an accomplished athlete who is looking forward to winning the paratriathlon in the 2020 Paralympics Games. Jamie became an amputee when he was 11 months old and learned that he is diabetic when he was 20 years old. Despite these inherent challenges, Jamie has continued to pursue athletics and is a model of adaptation, enthusiasm, talent, and charisma. He is a competitive athlete who paradoxically seeks to include and play with those less gifted. He is driven to support a world of healthier decisions and happier people and through his life experiences, understands that it’s not about what happens to us, it’s about how we choose to respond.
As a lifelong athlete, Jamie is committed to living a healthy lifestyle while encouraging others to do the same.
