Less than a decade after starting her adaptive sports career, Alana has already won six Paralympic medals in both alpine skiing and women’s wheelchair basketball, making her the first American woman to win gold medals in both the Paralympic Summer and Winter Games. “I had always been an athlete and competitor in basketball, volleyball and softball until I broke my back in a snowboarding accident and became paralyzed. After I discovered adaptive sports, I wanted to get back into being a competitive athlete.” After she fell in love with alpine skiing, she set her sights high and aimed to join Team USA.

“I had established the lofty goal of making the team in two years, and for that to come true was a testament to my hard work and dedication.”

But for Alana, competing in the Paralympic Games is more than breaking records and collecting medals. “I know that what I do can and will inspire other young women to reach their full potential.” It was Alana Nichols’ passion and persistence that propelled her to the world stage—and she doesn’t seem to be leaving anytime soon.
