Professional Wheelchair Bodybuilder to Speak at The University of Findlay
Professional wheelchair bodybuilder Nick Scott will present “Anything is Possible! The Nick Scott Story” as part of The University of Findlay’s Diversity Month activities at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, in Winebrenner Theological Seminary.
Admission is free. Community members are welcome. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
At the age of 16, Scott was an ordinary teenager with an interest in athletics when a near-fatal traffic accident left him wheelchair-bound. After the accident, Scott became overweight and discouraged, but through determination and personal strength, he used his tragedy to turn his life into a triumph.
Now, Scott uses his insight to help others “awaken the beast within themselves” to achieve their personal goals. Scott has been in a wheelchair for all of his adult life, traveled in a wheelchair and became a professional wheelchair bodybuilder, giving him a unique perspective.
Since March 2006, Scott has competed and guest-posed at nearly 100 bodybuilding shows around the world. Scott earned a WBFF Pro Card in July 2009, and in March 2011, he won the overall title at the 2011 NPC Wheelchair Nationals in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. After that, he earned an IFBB Pro Card in wheelchair bodybuilder. Scott is the only wheelchair bodybuilder in the world who holds two different professional wheelchair bodybuilding cards from two bodybuilding organizations.
Scott will arrive in Findlay directly from Las Vegas, where he will be attending a major professional athletes conference. He will compete in a major body building competition on Oct. 12.
