Nick Scott: The Wheelchair Bodybuilder

Nick 'The Beast' Scott is the foremost promoter of wheelchair body building. In August of 1998 Nick was involved in a freak road accident that left him with a broken back and a damaged spine, requiring titanium rods to be vertically bolted to his spine. Diagnosed as paraplegic, Nick was told he would never walk again. After ballooning to 300 pounds, Nick was determined to prove his doubters wrong. First mastering power-lifting, in 2006 he competed in his first wheel chair body building competition. Four years later he has competed in 33 shows, and in 2008 became the USA Heavyweight Wheel Chair Champion. Now weighing 183 pounds and bench pressing 450 pounds, Nick's next dream is to form a professional wheelchair body building division at the International Federation for Body Building championships.

Hello,

I came across your site from a Google alert for "wheelchair". Since my product's blog is related to this, and because Google is fond of content related links, I was hoping you'd be interested in a blogroll link exchange. This is where I link to your site, and you link to mine.

For examples of this (under the "Blogroll" category on the right side of my blog), for more information on my product/blog, or to contact me, please visit http://oh-4.com/blog .

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Jeff

PS Nick's beastly, but the spray-on tan, does it really need to be that dark? Really?

I agree with CupHolderGuy.
Does he really need the colour to prove he is something else in the world of the paraplegic?

Bodybuilders use spray-on tan to even the field as darker skin picks up the light better and thus gives darker skinned people an unfair advantage. That said it is gay as hell...
