Brenna Huckaby Is Dreaming of Gold at Her First Winter Paralympics

Snowboarder Brenna Huckaby hopes to win her first olympic medal at the Winter Paralympics. 

Brenna Huckaby is one busy woman. 

Just a month after making history as the first amputee to ever be featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, the mom-turned-professional snowboarder is in South Korea, ready to compete at her first Winter Paralympics.

"I hope women feel empowered by [my SI Swimsuit photos]," Brenna told Swim Daily. "Everyone should feel sexy. It doesn’t matter what your body looks like, when you feel good in your skin it shows. Let me tell you, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t feel good in your own skin!"
