Welcome to the Official Site of Lex Gillette - Paralympic World Champion & World record Holder in the Long Jump


Lex's Vision

Lex Gillette is an American track and field athlete who has proved to the world that there are absolutely no excuses. Retina detachments in both eyes have left him with the challenge of living life with no sight. Fortunately for Lex, once he lost his sight, he gained a vision.

CONGRATULATIONS to Lex Gillette for winning gold in the long jump at the 2017 Para Athletics World Championships. This marks the third consecutive world champion title in the event for Gillette and it is a phenomenal way to start the four-year journey that leads to Tokyo 2020.
