Paraplegic skier Josh Dueck amazes and inspires by landing the first-ever sit-ski backflip.

Freeskier Josh Dueck was only 23 years old when he overshot a front flip off a jump at Silver Star, B.C., his home mountain, in 2004. He came to in the hospital to find that he was paralyzed from the waist down, never to ski—traditionally, at least—again. But that wouldn't stop him. Not even close. Nine months later Dueck was back on the slopes in a sit-ski, which he called his freedom chair.

Para-Olympian Chris Waddell, paralyzed from the waist-down, recently summitted 19,340-foot Mt. Kilimanjaro in a custom-made, four-wheel handcycle.

Presented with the idea of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, most of us would come up with a laundry list of excuses for why we couldn’t do it. We’d go on about how we’d never be able to get in shape for something like that or how work was just too busy. Then someone like Chris Waddell comes along and puts all of our excuses to shame. Chris Waddell climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro—without his legs.
