Personal: The International Paralympic Committee named Dahl one of the “Top 10 Para-Athletes You Should Like Before 2016” noting “expect her to be huge come Rio 2016.” That’s tall billing, but Dahl takes it in stride, saying that it reassures her she’s on the right track. In 2014, she moved to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., only a week after graduating from Lakewood High School with two years of college credit under her belt. She is completing a degree in Business and Technical Management with specialization in criminal justice, and hopes to attend law school one day. She was born with amyoplasia arthrogryposis in her left hand and both of her feet, causing her muscles not to form properly....Daughter of Robert and Cari Dahl…Has two brothers, Eli and Greyson…Hobbies include reading, photography, handcycling and shooting.
