While the actual selection of the 2014 Paralympic team has not been completed, athletes have been nominated for selection consideration by the sports’ Federation. Being nominated means selection to the team is pretty much assured. Those nominated for the team who have been featured here on MFA are:

Tatyana McFadden, Para-Skiing (Week 15)
Heidi Jo Duce, Para-Snowboard (Week 24)
Amy Purdy, Para-Snowboard (Week 30)

We will keep you posted on their status!

Meanwhile, the 2014 Olympic Games are in full swing and we have done a pretty good job, so far, in pinpointing champions. In the last two days, five of our featured athletes have medaled. Let’s give a huge shout out to them here:

Jamie Anderson-Slopestyle Snowboarding (Week 22) – Gold Medal
Ashley Wagner-Figure Skating Team (Week 1) – Bronze Medal
Gracie Gold-Figure Skating Team (Week 6) – Bronze Medal
Hannah Kearney-Mogul Skiing (Week 7) – Bronze Medal
Julia Mancuso-Combined Slalom Skiing (Week 12) – Bronze Medal

We believe that this is just the beginning!
