Personal: Born with retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative visual impairment, Craig started losing his eyesight in 2010 and retains about four percent of his vision. He had never ran track before losing his sight but picked up running after receiving mobility training at his gym. He was introduced to running with a guide when he reached out to a local disability organization, Sportable, to help him run the Broad Street Mile in Virginia. He felt an immense freedom from crossing the finish line. Soon after, he was inspired by watching track and field competition at the 2016 Paralympic Games on television. The next year, he ran his first Paralympic competition at the 2017 Desert Challenge Games where he won three medals, including gold in the 400-meters....Son of Gwen Coles…Has two brothers, Rayshawn and Te'Juan, and a sister, Breeanna…Hobbies include reading, rock climbing and watching movies…Favorite sport is football and is a fan of the Cleveland Browns…Enjoys going to the beach and baking…Aspires to be a sports psychologist…Hopes to star in a Marvel movie one day.
