In 2003, Andre Kajlich was a Charismatic 23-year-old student attending his father’s Alma Mater in the city of Prague. One night, partying with friends into the early hours, he wound up on the tracks in front of an oncoming subway train. His devastating injuries required that both legs he amputated above the knees, and after three weeks in a medically induced coma, he awoke to an insanely altered reality.
Andre has become an Ultra-Endurance Pioneer, a World Champion Para-Triathlete, an Ironman World Champion, and the only Wheelchair Athlete to finish an Ultraman Triathlon (he’s done four: Hawaii, Australia, Canada and Israel). He finished the Race Across America, hand cycling 3,100 miles in just 12 days, sleeping 90 minutes a night to make it from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD. During the Brazil135 Ultra Marathon, Andre completed 135 miles through the jungle terrain in 62 hours, sometimes crawling along the forest dragging his wheelchair behind him.
