Posted: Updated:
HBO's Real Sports with Bryan Gumbel is filming a special segment on Marshall County's Cooper Blair.

He's the 10-year old, who has prosthetic legs, but functions like every healthy young boy.

Cooper's story is well known, born with deformed legs and feet, which had to be taken off when he was two. He's learned to live and thrive with his disability.

Cooper is in Louisville, Kentucky taking part in the Wounded Warriors Softball Camp.  The HBO story is centered around the camp. The story will air in July.

Blair, who is the son of Zack and Richelle, recently competed at the Endeavor Games in Oklahoma, wining three gold medals. In fact, he set a pair of national records in the process. He won the 100m dash in a time of 15.55, besting the old mark of 23.96. He also won gold in the 400, a race he never practiced previous. But Blair breezed to victory in a time of 1:22.19, shattering the old mark of 1:58.25.

Blair, a fifth-grader at Our Lady of Peace in the fall, will be competing in nationals in Iowa City in July, with the of making it to worlds.
