Munich, October 2019
“It’s not what happens to you. It’s what you do with what happens to you,” says the seven-time Paralympian.
After a ski accident paralyzed him from the waist down, Chris Waddell became the fastest monoskier in the world, winning 12 Paralympic medals in alpine skiing and one in track and field. Giving up was never an option. In 2009, he summited Mt Kilimanjaro, the first “nearly unassisted” paraplegic to do so, a feat, which created his platform to transform the perception of people with disabilities. As the founder of the One Revolution Foundation Chris embarked on a personal journey to share his story as a speaker, writer and television host.
