Bethany has played for the U.S. National Sitting Volleyball team for the past 10 years. She was born with fibular hemimelia and proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) and had her right leg amputated at 2 years old as a result. Bethany’s parents introduced her to sports at a young age and created an environment where Bethany believed she could do anything anyone else could. She competed in the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio and the team brought home the first gold medal in the history of U.S. sitting volleyball. She’s currently preparing for the 2021 Paralympic Games in Tokyo while cross-training in beach volleyball.
