Schuble has been a talented athlete throughout her life. She was a two-time state champion in soccer and a varsity track runner in high school. While attending the United States Military Academy at West Point to become a commissions officer, Schuble was a varsity athlete in three separate sports. One day during hand-to-hand combat class, she sustained a traumatic brain injury. She sustained an additional TBI later in a car wreck, and in 2004, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. This led her to the Lakeshore Foundation, a Paralympic training site in Birmingham where she was encouraged to get into cycling, which she did in 2007. In 2008, she won a gold medal and set a world record in the 500m time trial at the Paralympic Games Beijing 2008. She was the first female in the world to compete in team sprint as Team USA was only country to do it. At the London 2012 Paralympic Games, she was the first woman to medal as a part of team sprint. She continued her success at the Paralympic Games Rio 2016. ...Daughter of Jerry and Beth Schuble…Has one brother, Tom, and two sisters, Stephanie and Melissa…Has two English bulldogs, Panzer and Sherman…Grandfather and his brother both played professional baseball…Works as an engineer…Hobbies include cycling, triathlons and playing with her bulldogs
