Amy Purdy / Paralympic Winter Games..

Friday, March 7, 2014

NBC will be airing live coverage of the  Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games and now that snowboarding events have been added to these games I am even more excited to watch!

One girl in particular that I will be rooting for is Amy Purdy. Amy contracted meningitis as a young adult and had to have both her legs amputated below the knee, but that has not stopped her drive and determination on the mountain & in life.  She is a world class snowboarder, motivational speaker, model, all around awesome person, and favored to take the gold at these games.

I was lucky to meet Amy one night at the espnW summit and get to hang out a bit - Amy is one of those girls who is always fun, positive, and never stops laughing - the kind of girl you just gravitate towards. It's going to be fun watching her in Sochi.

As if these Paralympic games aren't enough to keep her busy, it's just been announced that Amy will be dancing this coming season on "Dancing With the Stars". Can't wait to watch her kick some butt on the dance floor.

But first I plan on being glued to NBC to see her compete on Friday, March 14 live on NBC.
