Aaron Scheidies - Paratriaflon

Aaron Scheidies is a blind triathlete who lives north of Seattle with his wife and two small children. He is an eight-time triathlon World Champion and fourteen-time National Champion who has competed in over 300 triathlons, ranging from short sprints to full Ironman distance. While his category of Triathlon was not included in the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio, Aaron showcased his talent by competing in the Road Cycling event. Now, his triathlon event is scheduled to be included in the Paralympic Games. Aaron has been steadfast in his training and preparation to compete in the Paralympics yet again, finding time to train in between his job as a physical therapist and his dedication to his family.

亚伦优秀奥修的前景很好 - 亚伦从2019年东京考试活动和国际电联帕拉西普洛伦世界锦标赛的青铜奖牌中拿回家。他对在整个职业生涯中,在国际铁人三项联盟(TU)活动中制作讲台的完美记录。

为了让孩子保持健康和安全,亚伦一直在为他们留下来,每周工作两天,而他的妻子继续全职努力为家庭提供。

在照顾两个幼儿,有限的交通选择和培训设施关闭,亚伦的严格培训时间表已被削减75%。视力受损或盲目的人依靠公共交通,人与人的对话,以及他们在社区中四处走动的触感。所有这些现在都是作为健康危害的姿势。

凭借所有这些不可避免的障碍,亚伦尚未根据需要训练。随着任何高性能运动员知道,一致性是成功的关键。几个月进入大流行,似乎他在残奥会上竞争的梦想被搁置了。

With the BOOST2020 grant, Aaron and his wife will be able to hire a much-needed caregiver – who is following COVID-19 protocols – for their children. This will open large blocks of time for Aaron to train and compete to secure his spot at the 2021 Games.

知道我们的Boost2020授予不仅仅是亚伦,而且还有他的家庭,这是非常有意义的。
