  3. Known as the 2002 Paralympic Winter Games “Golden Girl”, Lauren is an incredible athlete who was born missing both legs below the knee and her left arm below the elbow. She has been a skier since the age of four when she would ski in Whitefish, Montana on family ski holidays. She grew up in the Calgary/Banff area. She started ski racing at the age of 14 when a friend convinced her to join the Alberta Disabled Ski Team. She has four world championship titles and has won three Paralympic medals including two Gold, all while completing her electrical engineering degree at the University of Victoria. Her success is a testimony to Lauren’s dedication to the sport and determination to overcome any obstacle. She insists that her disability is as normal for her as any obstacle that other people face every day. Lauren has been a member of the Canadian Disabled Alpine Ski Team since 1998. Since then, she has won over 50 medals in various levels of competition. During the Ladies Downhill event at the 2002 Paralympic Games, she fell and injured her knees. After witnessing her fall, people didn’t expect her to continue skiing for the rest of the Games. She was rushed to the polyclinic where several doctors evaluated her and although she was surrounded with doubt, she overcame her injuries with determination and spirit and went on to win the Gold Medal! Lauren’s Story

  5. In Paralympic alpine skiing, racers can reach speeds of more than 100 kilometres an hour, traveling down a vertical drop that ranges from 120 to 800 metres. The vertical drop is made even more difficult by a series of gates the skiers must twist and turn to pass through. In alpine skiing, athletes are classified as standing, sitting or visually impaired and compete against other athletes with a similar disability. Skiers with a visual impairment use the same equipment as able-bodied skiers, but ski with a guide. Skiers with locomotive disabilities may either use the same equipment as able-bodied skiers or a prosthesis (an artificial arm or leg) and stabilizers in place of ski poles (stabilizers are a type of crutch with a small ski at the end). Summary
