Bridgestone Olympic Partner Evan Strong

Evan Strong lost his left leg at the age of 17 after the motorcycle he was riding was hit by a drunk driver. A rising star on the pro skateboarding circuit, Strong connected with the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) during his recovery in hopes of finding a way to ride again. He first tried snowboarding in 2007 and eventually moved from Hawaii to Lake Tahoe in pursuit of his new passion. Now 30 years old, Strong is one of the most dominant athletes in adaptive snowboarding, winning multiple World Cup titles, a Winter X Games gold medal, and a Paralympic gold medal in the debut of snowboard cross at Sochi 2014.
