Lloyd Bachrach was born with a rear congenital bone deficiency which left his legs unusually short. In spite of his substantial physical challenge, Lloyd has driven himself to excel both athletically and professionally. Having developed his physical skills at an early age via his interest in swimming, baseball, and bowling; Lloyd has since become accomplished in the sport of gymnastics, competing against able body gymnasts in high school and college. In 1996 he was named to the USA Paralympic Team playing sit-volleyball. Lloyd still enjoys downhill mono-skiing and is an avid SCUBA diver.
In 1995 Lloyd founded Yes, You Can! Motivational Programs and has travelled the country delivering his message to a wide variety of audiences including children and adults. His motivational story helps our youth understand there is nothing they cannot achieve with a positive attitude and hard work.
