Mallory Weggemann

Mallory is a Paralympic Gold and Bronze Medalist from the 2012 London Paralympic Games and a two-time Paralympian (London 2012 and Rio 2016) with her sights set on the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Since hearing about the Paralympic movement for the first time in 2008 Weggemann has become incredibly passionate about raising awareness to the movement and changing perceptions of disability through her work both in and out of the pool.

Mallory is a motivational speaker delivering messages that are not only inspirational, but also share valuable lessons relating to adapting to change, overcoming fear and survival in the face of tremendous odds. Weggemann challenges each and everyone of us to recognize that we all have a disability and with that comes a choice, to either allow our disability to enable us or disable us.

Weggemann also writes for Huffington Post and has written for CNN International. Mallory recently wrote her first book, "Complete Athlete: Understanding the Journey to Becoming a True Professional"

Mallory currently lives in Minnesota and trains with her coach Steve Van Dyne in pursuit of her dreams of representing Team USA at what could be her third Paralympic Games in Tokyo in 2020.
