Paralympic Medalist Stops in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

 A seven time Paralympic medalist was in Bismarck today, to speak about overcoming challenges.

 Muffy Davis was a top ranked U.S. Junior Ski Racer in the 80's and was on a path to fulfill her lifelong goal of going to the Olympics when she was in a tragic accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down.
     But she didn't let that stop her. 
     Davis went on to win four medals in the Paralympics for adaptive skiing and three Gold medals in London for hand cycling. 

"My goal was always to go to the Olympics. I mean I set that goal at a young age. But never did I think it would be in a wheelchair. So to know that's possible was really exciting and that I didn't have to change who I was meant to be because of my disability," said Davis.

 She hopes to compete again, this time during  the 2016 Rio Paralympic games.
