This Paralympic Gold Medalist's Grueling Workouts Will Make Your Jaw Fall to the Floor
The 2018 Winter Olympics may be over, but if you're jonesing for more snow and sport, the 2018 Paralympics are currently going strong in Pyeongchang, South Korea. If you don't know which athletes to watch out for, we've got one woman you'll fall in love with. Meet Brenna Huckaby, the badass American snowboarder who won a gold medal in the women's LL2 final on March 12. The 21-year-old is also predicted to take home gold in the banked slalom races on March 16.
Brenna was a gymnast when she was a kid, but an osteosarcoma diagnosis in 2010 resulted in the amputation of her right leg. Soon after, she fell in love with snowboarding — and she hasn't looked back since!
You may recognise Brenna from the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, where she was the very first amputee to ever be featured in the issue. This woman is literally making history. If you want some insight into her athleticism, take a look below at her grueling workouts. From weightlifting and snowboarding to surfing, she does it all.
