When a little boy at AutoZone stared at Michael Assefa’s prosthetic running blade recently, Assefa responded by lifting the blade and saying “It’s cool, isn’t it? Just like Iron Man!”
The positive response is characteristic of the 21-year-old Lincoln-Way East alum. Assefa lost the lower part of his left leg in an accident, but during the past three years, has risen to become one of 31 representatives from the United States in the International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports World Games.
