When Mike Nicholson lost all but one of his limbs while serving in Afghanistan, he could have given up on life, on dreams, and on hope but he didn’t. Now he’s blessed to have both family and sports in his life. His wife Katie, 7-month-old son Sawyer, and 12-year-old daughter Callie were there to support him as he made one of his dreams into a reality. Mike took home the gold medal in swimming and even impressed Prince Harry with his golf skills.
