Tyler -
U.S. Paralympic Alpine Team
3x Paralympian, Public Speaker

“Never ever give up, you can accomplish anything if you try"

Tyler or TC (as his friends call him) is a 3x Paralympian and retired member of the United States Paralympic Alpine Ski Team. He lost his right leg below the knee at the age of one due to a congenital condition known as Fibular Hemimelia, which means he was born without the fibula bone. Not letting this deter him he participated in various sports and activities while growing up including basketball, swimming, tennis, dance, and karate. He eventually found his true calling in the form of alpine skiing. Thanks to a combined effort from the Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports and the National Sports Center for the Disabled Tyler fell in love with skiing and quickly moved up in the standings. After being awarded a scholarship to attend and spectate the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic Games a dream was formed, to compete at the games and represent Team USA. Four years later Tyler had his chance when he was named to the 2014 United States Paralympic Team that would compete in Sochi, Russia. Since then he has competed at the 2015 World Championships, World Cups and the 2018 Pyeongchang Paralympic Games with some Top 20 and Top 15 finishes to his name. He recently completed his career at the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Games where he was named Flag bearer for Opening Ceremonies.

While ski racing is a major part of Tyler's life it is not the only passion he has. Tyler has a huge heart and is a strong believer in giving back to communities. He has worked with many organizations such as the Pennsylvania Center for Adaptive Sports, Amputee Coalition of America, the National Sports Center for the Disabled, and Classroom Champions to help make a difference in the community. Tyler enjoys promoting living healthy and active lifestyles among students and schools across the country and is currently partnered with TrueSport to spread this message. He is also a motivational speaker and loves to share his passions and journey.
