ICE WARRIORS captured the action at Team USA's gold medal victory over Russia »
For more than 5 months, ICE WARRIORS followed the U.S. sled hockey team on their road to the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. These remarkable competitors — experienced athletes and rookie players, high school students and military veterans wounded in action — shared one goal: to make history with a repeat gold medal win.
Sled hockey, called “murderball on blades,” is played as aggressively as able-bodied hockey — but these players battle with their sticks, sharp sled runners and the serrated ice picks used to propel their sleds. They fight it out at eye level with a fast-moving puck in this game of force, speed and strategy.
