Ottobock announced Hilbert Potter of Louisville, Kentucky, as the August winner of the company’s C-Leg 15-Year Anniversary Photo Contest.
Potter is a military veteran who lost his leg in Iraq in 1991 while serving in the U.S. Army, but he is proud to say he never let that stop him from leading an active life. A physical therapist, Potter works with soldiers in the Warrior Transition Unit at Fort Knox and has completed the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon twice.
His winning photo was taken at the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Championship recently held in Louisville where, in his volunteer duties, he met the challenge of walking the entire 18-hole course for three straight days.
Ottobock established the photo contest as part of its celebration to mark the arrival of the C-Leg in the U.S. in 1999. The contest asks users of the C-Leg or another prosthetic product to submit photos or videos showing how the product has changed their lives. One winning photo or video will be chosen each month through November 2014 with the typical prize being an iPad, GoPro camera, or Kindle Fire. A grand prize of $1,000 will be awarded in December.
