SNELLVILLE, Ga. -- Barry Ewing is a perfectionist because he has so much riding on his work.
"Hopefully, I've changed a lot of people's lives," said Ewing, the owner of Eagles Sportschairs in Snellville.
He runs a small operation that accounts for as much as 40 percent of the adaptive sports equipment market.
"There are a lot of people with certain disabilities that with minor equipment can do anything," he said.
Ewing started the business in 1979 after his brother-in-law became a paraplegic in a car accident.
He now sells to all the top competitors, including Santiago Sanz from Spain, who's had seven first-place finishes in the Peachtree Road Race quadriplegic division.
"Oh, I love the Peachtree," Ewing said. "We always have lots of athletes there. I've had winners in every division."
