Saylor O’Brien

Alpine Skiing

Alpine Skier Saylor O’Brien was born with Spina Bifida; however, her parents always taught her that there are no limitations, just adaptions.

At the age of 4, Saylor began her training with Wasatch Adaptive Sports before moving to the National Ability Center where she learned how to sit-ski. In 2017, not only did Saylor begin competing, she started winning.

O’Brien brought home the bronze in her first ever Super-G race in Panorama, Canada early in the season; she followed that up with two more bronze medals and silvers in both slalom and giant slalom.
