Team Citi athlete Alana Nichols won a silver medal for Alpine Skiing in the women’s sitting downhill competition, before being injured in a crash while competing in the super-G at the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi. Her agent released a statement saying she suffered a concussion and had to get stitches to her chin…OUCH! However, the talented athlete let it be known on social media that she is doing “fine.”
Alana, along with 8 other Olympians has teamed up with a U.S. Olympic, Paralympic or Community program in need. Alana is partnering with The Team USA Paralympic Champions Fund to increase financial support for athletes pursuing the dream of participating in the Paralympics, so they can aspire to go for the gold too!
