Spokane, WA — Don't let the wheelchair fool you.
This little one has a need for speed. Aiden Youngblood, 4, was born with spina bifida, which left him unable to get around on his own.
But that doesn't stop him from shooting hoops, or possibly becoming the next Paralympic star.
A coach surprised him one evening with what could be the smallest racing chair ever made. The Washington state youngster has outlived all medical expectations so far, and it looks like this powerhouse in training will race to many more finish lines in the future.
