Lieutenant Commander Dan Cnossen, USNA '02 and a U.S. Navy SEAL, lost both legs above the knee to an explosive device in Afghanistan in September 2009.
In September 2010 he ran a mile in his prosthetics.
He's now a contender for gold at the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Join us in cheering him to victory in cross-country skiing and sitting biathlon! He will compete three times from Sunday, March 9th to Saturday, March 15th.
