Personal: Stanton has become a breakout star since his debut with the U.S. Paralympics Alpine Skiing National Team. As a freshman at the University of Denver, Stanton received the university’s prestigious Freshman of the Year Award in 2013. He was born with fibular hemimelia, a growth deficiency of the fibula, and thus had his right leg amputated below the knee at age six. He skied for the first time when he was three years old and has played able-bodied sports for most of his life. He was introduced to Paralympic sport in 2011, when a friend convinced him to enter the Michigan Adaptive Sports State Championships ski races. After winning back-to-back titles at the state championships, Stanton was introduced to Erik Petersen of the National Sports Center for the Disabled. Petersen brought Stanton to his first race camp in Breckenridge, Colorado, and from there, Stanton was hooked on international competition. He represented Team USA at the Paralympic Winter Games Sochi 2014...Named 2016 Adaptive Athlete of the Year by the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame...Named Male Athlete of the Month for January 2016 by the United States Olympic Committee...Fluent in Spanish...Son of Michael and Rae Stanton...Has two siblings, Jonathan and Brittney...Works on Wall Street as an analyst...Hobbies include golfing, hockey, hiking and being outside and active.
