In June of 2005, Keith Gabel was involved in an industrial accident; over 2,000 pounds of hydraulic pressure crushed his left foot. After a series of medical procedures the decision was made to amputate. Keith is an action sports enthusiast with a background in big mountain and freestyle snowboarding. Just three months after his accident, Keith set his sights on making the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Team. In February 2013, Gabel won an International Paralympic Committee World Cup event in Slovenia, and in 2012 he earned an X-Games gold medal. He is currently ranked third in the world in his discipline of Para Snowboard Cross and has been named to the U.S. Paralympic Snowboarding National A-Team. In March 2014, Keith earned a bronze medal at the 2014 Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia in the first ever Para Snowboard-Cross event. A United States Team for Tomorrow Ambassador, Keith is also a humanitarian helping others with debilitating illnesses or injuries.
