That’s quite a weight for only one man, but he has asserted himself and taken it like a champion. However, he is human, so some days are better than others. He quoted an example and remembered when Ashton and he were still children in primary school.

They shot basketball, followed each other’s shots and Ashton made a shot called “right hand. When Mike left and already realized that he couldn’t take the shot, his twin told him, “You can do anything you want. I can’t do that shot for you. Mama isn’t here; she can’t do it for you. It’s your challenge. Stop using your disability as a crutch. That’s your obstacle.”
