Casey Pieretti
Acrobatic Skater and Single Leg Amputee

Casey Pieretti
Copyright © Kathie Fry of SkateLog.com

I met Casey Pieretti for the first time in October of 2001 when he was giving a motivational presentation and skating demonstration to a group of students at an elementary school in the Danish Village of Solvang in Southern California.

How Casey Lost His Leg
Casey was an active college student and athlete when he lost his leg in an accident caused by a drunk driver. It took several months for him to recover from his traumatic injuries, and during that time he made a decision not to let his accident destroy his life. He began making plans to continue his athletic career after his recovery. After working very hard during several months of physical therapy, Casey started training to become a serious triathlete, setting a goal for himself of not only participating in the most important competitions for amputee athletes, but swimming, cycling, running, and competing against non-amputee athletes as well.

Casey's Message to Kids
Casey's story about his accident, recovery period, and subsequent career as a triathlon athlete and motivational speaker is an emotional and inspirational tale full of heartbreak, despair, hope, and triumph. His motivational speeches include an anti-drug and alcohol abuse message, but the main focus of his presentation is convincing his audience, not to be afraid of setting lofty goals for themselves, and not to be discouraged, or consider themselves helpless victims, when life deals them a bad hand.
