Physical Challenge: Congenital Limb Deficiency
Sports: Track & Field
Being born without her left hand and forearm has never stopped Dani Aravich from realizing her destiny as a competitive athlete.
After her time as a D-1 cross country and track and field athlete, Dani quickly became involved in the adaptive sports community where she not only volunteered as a limb-different coach, but also began training for the 2020 Paralympic Games in track and field.
Through this training, Dani caught the attention of a U.S. Paralympic Nordic Ski coach who invited her to a training camp in 2019. Although the U.S. Para Nordic Team is in her sights for the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing, Dani is focused on her performance as a member of the U.S. Paralympics Track and Field team in Tokyo where she will compete in the 400M sprint.
