The 2022 Winter Paralympics will feature approximately 564 athletes competing across six sports (78 total medal events). Here are just a few of the U.S. stars to watch by sport. In Alpine Skiing, Laurie Stephens (Wenham, MA) is the second most decorated winter sport athlete on the team with seven Paralympic medals in alpine skiing: two golds, two silvers and three bronzes. Two-time Paralympic medalist Andrew Kurka (Palmer, AK) also returns to competition. Kurka became the first Alaskan Paralympic medalist when he won a gold medal in downhill and a silver medal in super-G in 2018. Five-time Paralympian and 10-time Paralympic medalist Oksana Masters (Louisville, KY)–the most decorated athlete on the U.S. roster–returns to compete in cross-country skiing and biathlon. For Masters, it’s been just six months since she competed at the Summer Paralympics in Tokyo, taking home road cycling gold medals in time trial and road race.

In Sled Hockey, Rico Roman (Portland, OR), Josh Pauls (Greenbrook, NJ), and Declan Farmer (Tampa, FL) begin their quest to help the U.S. win a fourth straight gold in Beijing.
