Personal: In the late 1980s, Muffy Davis was a talented member of the U.S. Junior Ski Team with dreams of Olympic gold. But one morning on a downhill training run in Sun Valley, Idaho, she crashed through a safety fence and was paralyzed from the chest down. Davis decided to “thrive” rather than merely survive. She went on to earn a combined four medals at the 1998 and 2002 Paralympic Winter Games in alpine skiing. She picked up competitive cycling later in her career and was an immediate success story, racing to gold in three separate events at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
