Josh Sweeney leads a group of five USA ice sledge hockey players with military ties who will try to defend their country’s Paralympic and world titles.

 

Josh Sweeney was deployed to Afghanistan in September 2009 to serve as a US Marine Sergeant.

Just one month into his deployment, on 28 October 2009, Sweeney stepped on an improvised explosive device in the Afghan town of Nawzad, which would change his life forever.

“My buddies patched me up, and two hours later I was on a helicopter to a camp in Afghanistan where they did a little more patching up,” Sweeney said.

Upon returning to the USA, Sweeney underwent more than a dozen surgeries and started life again back home as a bilateral amputee.

Now, a little more than three years later, Sweeney is one of five military veterans on USA’s ice sledge hockey team that will be favoured to repeat as Paralympic champions at Sochi 2014.
