Utah Paralympic Snowboarder Defies All Odds

Oh man, the story of Brittani Coury’s journey to the Olympics fires me up. After injuring her ankle at 17, she dealt with more than eight surgeries and nonstop pain until she was 25, when she decided to amputate. Shortly after amputating, Brittani earned her way onto Team USA Paralympic Snowboarding. Her perseverance and commitment led to her winning Silver in banked slalom at the 2018 PyeongChang Paralympics. Brittani plans to compete in the 2022 Beijing Paralympics but in the meantime, she is on the frontline working as a nurse in SLC. So badass.
