Jerome Avery is widely recognized in the Paralympic sports world and his narrative epitomizes hard work, self-sacrifice, and outstanding athletic accomplishment. Jerome was born on December 22, 1978, in Lemoore, California, USA, and from his background of an all-star high school sprinter to one 4-time Paralympics guide runner is a mind-blowing story. Today, let us journey in the almost unbelievable story of Jerome Avery, a man who has spent his life helping both elite and beginner blind and partially sighted athletes excel on the track.


Life and Sport Career

It was this fondness that was perceived in Jerome at a very young age that turned him into his school MVP for four years straight and earned him a fifth rank on the 100m at some point in his state going from an unsuspecting youngster and supported by traditional work ethic and a supportive family.


Getting Into Paralympics Guide Running

2016 Rio Paralympic Games in Brazil (Jerome's Paralympic guiding journey started from 2004 to the 2008 Beijing, 2012 London, and 2016 Rio Paralympic Games) Since piloting blind sprinters to victories as a volunteer guide with U.S. Paralympics since 2004, he has long been one of the most in-demand guides in the country. Most significantly, he coached David Brown, who was among the world's best blind sprinters from 2014-21. As a guide runner, his job is to run in the race with the athlete he is guiding, matching strides to hit the finish. Avery's commitment and altruism have been key after that success for those that he has coached.


Success Through Selflessness

Avery supports the common athletic philosophy: "Success Through Selflessness" - the way how visually challenged athletes are led to wins. His selfless dedication to the athletes he mentors has resulted in countless medals and championships and sparked inspiration for millions of people worldwide. It reflects his passion to create a supportive and empowering environment for visually impaired athletes by literally seeing the potential they had, just as you have seen them perform feats of physical greatness.


Highlights and Great Championship Results

Some of Avery's biggest championship moments include guiding in the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio, 2012 London, 2008 Beijing, and 2004 Athens. He was also a member of the 2019 U.S. Paralympics Track & Field Parapan American Team as a guide runner. His incredible displays and dedication were rewarded with 4-time recognition as a Paralympic guide runner, a testament to his talent and passion for the sport.

This steadfast commitment to the triumph of blind athletes continues to motivate others on an international scale, demonstrating the influence that altruism and resilience can have in sports.
