3X Paralympian and 2X Gold Medalist Josh Pauls

Paralympian Josh Pauls was born without tibia bones, the larger of the two bones that make up the lower leg and supports most of a person’s weight. Because of that, he had both of his legs amputated when he was only 10 months old. He first tried sled hockey when he was 9, but he didn’t like it because it wasn’t like the ice hockey he saw able-bodied teams playing. But when he tried is again less than a year later, this time without the extra weight of his prothetics, he felt the freedom of sliding on the ice and fell in love with sled hockey! 

  


Pauls won gold in the 2010 and 2014 sled hockey Paralympics and is hoping to lead Team USA to yet another gold as team captain at the 2018 Paralympics in Pyeongchang this week. He hopes his years of experience in sled hockey will someday enable him to coach ice hockey at an advanced level, even though, as he likes to joke, he never had to learn to skate. Pauls is an advocate for inclusion in hockey and enjoys playing on sled teams against able-bodied teams! NTI wishes him and all of Team USA best of luck!
