Legally Blind Girl Does Pole Vault, High Jump, Runs Track, Plays Basketball

This is a story I just had to share.

It’s about a girl named Charlotte Brown. She’s a 14-year-old blonde-haired high school freshman. She runs track for Emory Rain High School. She’s also in cross country and basketball and does the high jump and pole vault.

What’s the big deal, you ask? Charlotte is legally blind.

She has 20/400 vision in her right eye. And that’s her good eye. The other only provides a pinhole that helps her sense light and dark. She jokes the left one is “for decoration” and to keep “my face symmetrical.”

This is amazing to me. I suck at sports of any kind … and I can see pretty well with my contacts in!
