One of the world’s best female sit-skiers, Kimberly Joines is a two-time IPC world champion, 22-time IPC World Cup winner and two-time Paralympic bronze medallist. In 2014, Joines earned a second straight Paralympic Games bronze with a third place finish in the sit-ski slalom race along with three World Cup medals and gold medal performances in the slalom and giant slalom at nationals.

After battling back from several other injuries, Joines said she was hoping to better her bronze medal from Turin at the Sochi Games. The technical specialist is the true picture of determination – when it counts, she always grits her teeth and gets things done.

When Joines isn’t racing, she can still be found on the slopes hitting powder in her sit-ski. She is an avid foodie and enjoys cooking (likely something spicy!), camping, gardening and spending time in the mountains
