TRAVELS FROM: Utah
Chris Waddell is the most decorated male monoskier in Paralympic history, winning 13 medals for skiing and track in the Winter and Summer Paralympics, and he was the first paraplegic person to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro nearly unassisted. Waddell is a phenomenal motivational speaker. His resilience message, “It’s not what happens to you. It’s what you do with what happens to you,” will push your team to find opportunity in tragedy, mishap, fear and insecurity. The strongest, smartest and most accomplished among us will struggle. The successful just do it better. Chris knows struggle and victory. As a college freshman ski racer, his binding popped off in the middle of a turn. The resulting fall broke his back and left him paralyzed from the waist down. Less than a year later, his first turns started a career that defined the sport of monoskiing. Chris is one of four disabled competitors enshrined in the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. He is also a member of the Paralympic Hall of Fame.
