Paralympic Snowboarder Tyler Mosher in Studio Q

Q

Tyler Mosher may be great at swerving down the slopes, but the parasnowboader has conquered incredible uphill battles, too. On Dec 30, it will be 13 years since Mosher tumbled down a 10 metre drop while snowboarding, broke his back in 9 places, and became paralyzed below the waist. A decade later, he had not only re-learned how to walk (something doctors told him he would never again do) but had also returned to winter sports as a cross-country skier. Then he defied the odds again by helping convince the Paralympic committee to include adaptive snowboarding on their roster. These days, he's training to represent Canada in the first ever Paralympic parasnowboarding competition. The strong-spirited athlete joins Jian to discuss his determination to overcome adversity and how he's gearing up for Sochi.
