deBotech assists Paralympic Alpine Skier, Alana Nichols….

In addition to the bobsleds and skeletons that deBotech helped to build, deBotech also partnered with BMW to develop a special sit-ski seat for 2014 U.S. Paralympic team member Alana Nichols. Nichols will use the seat to compete in the alpine skiing competition in the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games which takes place starting March 8th.

As Hans said of Nichols, “She is a cool person and a true fighter. Everyone at deBotech will be cheering her on.”

Alana Nichols states in a recent article, “When I’m on a mountain and I’m sliding, I feel so free – one, because I get to move fast, and, two, because I get to be creative and move where I want and the mountain is sort of my canvass. It makes me feel alive because I can move at my own will…….But on a mountain and in a monoski, I feel very free.”

“Bobsledding is not a big money game,” he said. “But you can’t replace the aura around it, the feel good around it, people’s impressions of the Olympics. For one month of the year, we’re not talking about war. You see these athletes getting along, high-fiving, Russians, the U.S., China, Korea, Japan. Those are the true benefits to doing the work.”
