Triathlete with disabilities urges children to keep trying

Sarah Reinertsen, whose lower left leg was amputated when she was 7, urged children to follow her example as a Paralympics runner and an Ironman triathlete. "For me to keep up, I've always had to be tougher than the rest," said Reinertsen, who also competed on CBS' "The Amazing Race." "I never wanted to be underestimated and sports helped me own my disability and my body." St. Petersburg Times (Fla.)
