IRVINE, Calif., July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Freedom Innovations, LLC, a leading developer of high technology lower-limb prosthetic medical devices, announced today that sponsored athlete Richard Browne of Jackson, Mississippi has been nominated to the U.S. Paralympic Track & Field Team for the London 2012 Paralympic Games.  Browne will be the first athlete to utilize Freedom Innovations' groundbreaking Catapult® Running Foot at the Paralympic Games.  He is slated to compete in the 100 meter dash and the high jump.
