Matt Ross has cerebral palsy, but it hasn’t stopped him from pursuing his dream of becoming a world-class power lifter.
“I’ve been lifting for about three and a half years,” said Ross, “ I thought ‘I could use my weakness as a strength’ instead of looking at cerebral palsy as an excuse.”

“He’s got the biggest heart. He’s done something that doctors have told him ‘you can’t do that!’,” said Matt’s coach, Jennifer Taylor.
