Sled hockey athletes are some of the most powerful competitors anywhere. Yet they all have come from low points in their lives. Many of the members of the USA Sled Hockey Team are soldiers who lost their limbs in Afghanistan or Iraq. Others were born without legs.
But that doesn’t stop them from reaching speeds of 35 MPH on the ice. If you are looking for a gift to inspire and excite, “Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey” is it. This documentary about Paralympic athletes follows them as they prepare for the 2014 winter games in Sochi, Russia. But their training, attitudes and bravery are timeless.
