I'm Kelly Allen and I was born with PFFD type D. Basically, the left side of my lower body didn't develop and I look like I only have one half of a leg. Doctors told my parents I would not be able to sit or stand let alone participate in any sports.
However, today I am more active than ever- I took 1st at US Nationals in Oklahoma City granting me the opportunity to represent the USA at Worlds. And having taken home 4th place at the 2012 ICF Sprint World Cup in Poznan, Poland I have decided to continue on with this sport in hopes of making the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Follow me on my journey, this website is about my adventures with One and One Half legs!
