#HighFivesAthlete Andrew Kurka shares his newest accomplishments and winter plans!


Hello from ASPEN!!

Where we are off to a great start of the season with some challenging training, and races in Aspen just ending. The races went well, especially for team USA, I managed four gold medals two in Slalom and two in GS, with Tyler Walker and Josh Elliot throwing down great runs just behind me. Stephen Lawler of team USA and Arly Velazquez of Mexico managed a few close podiums as well.

From Vail to Aspen, the training and new coaching staff has been pushing us to our limits. Making sure the up and coming season is a solid one. I am personally excited to have one of the best coaching staff and strongest teams in the world. With the World Cup season coming up shortly, and our first trip being to Pitztal Austria. We will have a great chance to showcase ourselves on the world stage yet again. The Rammer memorial cup in Aspen was just a beginning to what looks to be a promising and wonderful season.

Most of the team this year, has a very direct mindset on the up and coming Olympic year of Pyeong Chang in South Korea. With that in mind I decided to start raising funds early, and started up a GO FUND ME PAGE. I hope to raise enough funds, to fund my up and coming Olympic year as well as make a difference for Paralympic sport and those that have recently been injured. To start a website that, will showcase the abilities of adaptive sport and hopefully lower the suicide rate in the disabled community.
