Transcription: 
I push the extra mile because when I was in kindergarten, I was at the basketball court and our PE coach, Mr. Shawn, knows I was walking while upset. My coach goes, "There is one thing I can tell you in life, finish well" and I remember that in everything. I'm doing the track and field race and I'm really tired, I listened to that in my head. I repeat it and I just say, "Okay, I got to push as hard as I can this last 20 meters or however long it is", and it helps me a lot. I'm a really competitive kid. I mean I want to win and I don't want to lose, but if I lose, I want to lose with a fight and I don't want to just give up.

Amputee

Nine-year-old Ezra was born with a shorter left leg and only one finger on his left hand. When he was only two and a half years old, Ezra underwent extensive surgery to amputate his foot on the shorter leg and use one of his toes to create a second finger on his left hand. Now, Ezra uses a prosthetic leg to not just walk around, but to compete in sports including basketball, football, karate, and track and field.
