When Kimmie Champion (center)was born she had a congenital below the knee amputation. But, that did not stop the 2007 Robert Toombs graduate from being an All-Star basketball player, and a high jumper on the track team. This past week, Champion participated as a member of the USA  wheelchair team in the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation World Championship which took place at Brock University located in Saint Catherine, Canada in Ontario. The under 25 ladies dominated and won the crown.

Kimmie is also on the University of Alabama lady's wheelchair basketball team where she has been the captain for the last two years. That team has won the national championship the last three years. Champion plans on graduating with a degree in exercise science in May of 2012.
