Triple Paralympic Games medallist Amy Purdy has been inducted into the United States’ National Adaptive Sports Hall of Fame.

The National Adaptive Sports Hall of Fame award recognises individuals who have made significant contributions to summer and winter adaptive sports in two categories – competitor and contributor.

Purdy won a snowboard cross silver medal at Pyeongchang 2018 and bronze in the discipline at Sochi 2014, while also achieving bronze in South Korea in the banked slalom.

Away from the slopes, the 43-year-old Purdy has worked with the International Olympic Committee to promote sustainability, inclusion, peacebuilding and gender equality with young people.

She has also collaborated with the World Health Organization to promote the contribution of sport on international development and peace.
