Brenna Huckaby

Three-time Paralympic gold medalist Brenna Huckaby was first introduced to para snowboarding in 2013, after losing her right leg to cancer at age 14. She made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2018, and uses her platform to speak openly about parenting, overcoming cancer, mental health and body positivity, and is constantly encouraging women to never give up on their dreams. She is also a strong advocate for disability representation and inclusion in all areas of society. Huckaby led a multifaceted inclusivity campaign ahead of the 2022 Paralympic Games, in which she fought for her right to compete in events initially limited to less impaired athletes. 

The five-time World Champion is a mom of two young daughters. She has been featured in national TV campaigns with brand partners and on covers of publications such as Parents and InRegister magazines and recently partnered with female-empowerment leader Athleta as part of the Power of She Collective.
