Jordan CarrollJordan, 18, became hooked on alpine skiing after being invited to development camps with Disabled Wintersport Australia and Camp Quality.

Jordan skis with a guide because he has a vision impairment due to an inoperable tumour growing on his optic nerve.  He had tried skiing  prior to losing his sight and was determined to get back on the slopes.

He now aspires to represent Australia at the 2018 Winter Paralympics and is already well underway, having been  invited to train recently with the Australian Paralympic squad.

Jordan, who lives in East Brisbane, also competes in swimming and tandem cycling, building his leg strength for skiing.
