Renè De Silvestro was just seventeen years old when he hit a tree while skiing. The aspiring racer sustained severe spinal cord injuries, yet these injuries came to strengthen his spirit. With hustle, grit, and tremendous determination, Renè returned to the slopes on a sit ski. And just four years after his accident, he made his debut on the World Cup podium. Now, he’s gearing up to compete on the world’s biggest stage.
