Scott Rigsby Speaker Biography


Scott Rigsby is used to overcoming major obstacles. At age 18, he was thrown from a truck while working a summer job and dragged over 380 feet under a 3 ton trailer. After losing his right leg, Rigsby endured over 26 surgeries in 10 years before finally deciding to “free” himself from being a professional patient and remove his left leg. Rigsby spent years fighting his personal demons before making the commitment that if God opened a door for him, he would go through it.

On October 13, 2007, after enduring the elements for 16 hours and 43 minutes, NBC Sports featured Scott Rigsby as he became the first double amputee in the world to finish an Ironman distance triathlon with prosthetics at the 140.6-mile Ford Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Scott has been featured in national media as part of the “Unbroken” film premier on the NBC Today Show, HBO Films “Concert for Valor” Veteran’s Day special, and advertisements for Holiday Inn and Brawny, promoting his story of inspiration and non-profit work.

Scott Rigsby (www.scottrigsby.com) is a professional speaker whose mission is to encourage people to do more than they thought possible in pursuit of their dreams. Since that incredible day in 2007, over 100,000 people have been inspired by his Unthinkable story through his speaking events, book and video sales, and on the Internet.

Scott grew up near Atlanta, Georgia, where he makes his home today. He has delivered keynote speeches for civic organizations, military, Fortune 1000 companies, churches and schools across the country. He founded The Scott Rigsby Foundation, a Georgia 501(c)3 nonprofit, to inspire, inform, and enable individuals with loss of limb or mobility to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
