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. Dani is a member of the U.S. Paralympics Track and Field team and competed in the 400M sprint in Tokyo. She’s currently training on the U.S. Para Nordic Team and has her sights for the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing.
