Mallory Weggemann, Paralympic Swimmer for Team USA, ESPY Winner, Author

Rick has the pleasure of being joined by Paralympian, Mallory Weggemann, this week on Tech of Sports. Weggemann is a record-setting, two-time Paralympic swimmer for Team USA. She has set fifteen world records and thirty-four American records, and is also the recipient of an ESPY Award, a 15-time World Champion, and a Paralympic gold and bronze medalist. Weggemann has also served as a commentator on NBC for the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Games, the first female reporter in a wheelchair ever to serve in that capacity. Weggemann has established herself as a leader outside of the pool, as well; she is an inclusion advocate serving on the Advisory Board of Disability for Delta Air Lines as well as a cofounder and co-CEO of TFA Group, a social impact agency and production studio. She has a new book out and you should get it! In LIMITLESS: THE POWER OF HOPE AND RESILIENCE TO OVERCOME CIRCUMSTANCE LIMITLESS, Mallory shares her remarkable story and the lessons she learned by pushing past every obstacle, expectation, and limitation that stood in her way, and she helps readers to discover how, they, too, can choose to rewrite their own stories to overcome the challenges they face. “Sharing her journey with authenticity and vulnerability, Mallory doesn’t just bring us into her heart—she empowers us to reflect on our own journey, finding the power that exists when we honor our truth. At its core, Limitless is a reminder to all of us of the strength of the human spirit to overcome circumstance.” Thanks to Mallory and a great segment that really inspires!
