Default Skier with MS participates in Paralympics for Team USA

Paralympic alpine skier Danelle Umstead could complain about losing her sight at 13 due to a retinal condition, or about getting diagnosed years later with multiple sclerosis. But instead she rocks it for Team USA. ROCKS IT!

She DNFed in the medal round, but she'll always be a hero of mine.

She's a hero of mine too for sure. Been following their racing careers for a few years now after catching their bronze winning run on TV when they competed in the Para games in Sochi. And then had the great delight to chat with her for abit in Breckenridge two years ago. She is always a winner in my book.
