Explore Alana's story below.
Para Alpine Skiing
March 21, 1983
2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016
The road to becoming a five-time Paralympian began for Alana soon after a snowboarding accident caused her to become paralyzed from the waist down. That didn’t stop her athletic career, as she has become a three-sport phenomenon in wheelchair basketball, alpine skiing and para canoe. Now, as she looks forward to her sixth Paralympic appearance, Alana already leaves behind a host of accomplishments. Chief among them is becoming the first American woman to win gold medals at both Summer and Winter Paralympic Games.
Still, the road wasn’t always easy. In 2014, Alana sustained a shoulder fracture, which left her feeling like she had to start from scratch. But her fighting spirit endured, and once again she overcame the odds. Motivated by her grandmother, her best friend, and her baby boy, she hopes to inspire others by living her best life and finding ways to do things she once thought were impossible.
