No Olympics would be complete without the amazing athletes that make up the Paralympic team. This year’s 80-member team is the largest the U.S. has sent to the Paralympics. They will be competing from March 7-16.
“I am confident that this group of talented athletes is going to represent our country well both on and off the ice and snow," says Scott Blackmun, USOC CEO. "With the expanded platform of television coverage provided in partnership with NBC, these athletes are not only going to captivate the country, but also inspire the next generation of athletes following in their footsteps.”
