Against the Odds: Mullen's Ginkens battles clubfoot to play game he loves

February 14, 2013

Every time Mullen senior Logan Ginkens steps on the basketball court, it isn't just the opposing team he will have to battle that night.

Ginkens was born with bilateral club feet, a condition causing the ankle to point downward and the toes to be pulled toward the inner leg and the bottom of the foot to face inward instead of downward. In addition, the tendons on the inside of the leg are shortened and the Achilles tendon is tighter than on an average human leg.

The feet are also usually very short and wide.
