Someone You Should Know: Weightlifters

Posted:
WESTON (WAOW) -

Last month Newsline 9 introduced you to a remarkable Milwaukee woman remembered for devoting her life to others. Her story inspired us. That's why we're proud to bring back a special Newsline 9 series, "Someone You Should Know."

Tonight on Newsline 9 at 10 we introduce you to two men who are overcoming unbelievable obstacles. Todd Wilk was paralyzed in a hunting accident. Chad Miller was born with just one hand. But they both share a singular passion, weightlifting.

"It makes me feel better, makes me feel good, it makes getting stronger, losing the weight just makes everything much easier for me," said Wilk.

"There's things that I can't necessarily do as well as others but I'm going to try my hardest to do it as well as others," said Miller.

We'll show you how they've become an inspiration to others tonight on Newsline 9 at 10.
