Paralympic Gold Medalist
Two-time Paralympic Gold medalist Brenna Huckaby was introduced to para snowboarding in 2013, after losing her right leg to cancer at age 14. She quickly achieved success in the sport, landing her first World title only two years into her competitive career. A year later, Huckaby stepped away from snowboarding to give birth to her daughter, Lilah, and then returned to competition and secured two additional World Championship medals. In her Paralympic debut at the 2018 PyeongChang Games, Huckaby cemented her place at the top of the para snowboarding world, winning two gold medals including the first ever gold won in the banked slalom discipline. The 24-year old’s impact continues off the slopes, breaking barriers as the first differently-abled model to be featured in Sports Illustrated Swim, gracing the cover of multiple publications including Parents and InRegister Magazines and participating in global marketing and PR campaigns for international brands supporting female empowerment and body positivity. A role model and advocate, Huckaby champions prioritizing mental health, positive body image and the importance of family and her inspirational journey is a testament to the power of persistence in the face of adversity. Huckaby recently welcomed a second daughter, Sloan, to her family and is back to training with her sights set on Beijing 2022.
