Lloyd Bachrach was born in 1962 with a congenital bone deficiency, which left his legs unusually short. In spite of his substantial physical challenge, Lloyd has driven himself to excel both athletically and professionally.

Having developed his physical skills at an early age via his interest in swimming, baseball, and bowling, Lloyd has since become accomplished in the sport of gymnastics, competing against able bodied gymnasts. He won a staggering 25 gold, 27 silver, and 20 bronze medals in various competitions including the Prairie State Games, Chicago Park District Gymnastics on the Beach, the Midwest Open, and other intercollegiate meets. In addition, Lloyd has returned from Atlanta where he competed for the United States National Sit-Volleyball Team at the Paralympic Games and is in training for the 2000 Sydney Games. Lloyd also enjoys downhill mono-skiing and is a certified scuba diver.

Lloyd’s passion for gymnastics led him back to the gym, this time in a coaching role. He was director of gymnastics for the Chicago Park District, Therapeutic Recreation Department for seven years. Lloyd has coached girls gymnastics at the high school level. He is also certified as a national men’s gymnastics judge. Lloyd serves as a peer counselor for Families and Amputees in Motion (FAIM).

Lloyd’s accomplishments extend well beyond the athletic arena. He worked for several years at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, reaching the level of Currency Speculator. Lloyd has also pursued a successful modeling career, with clients such as Sears and Montgomery Ward, and has proven himself as an actor, serving in both on-screen and technical advisory roles. Now Lloyd devotes most of his time to Yes, You Can! Inc., a disability awareness and motivational program he created. The Yes You Can! message has been delivered to over 100,000 people of all ages and abilities.

A Chicago area native, Lloyd attended Thornridge High School and Northern Illinois University. He was married to Julia Sniderman in the fall of 1996 and they had a baby girl, Marissa in December of 1997.
