Ice Warriors: U.S. Sled Hockey On-Demand

Follow the U.S. sled hockey team as they prepare for the Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia.  Watch On-Demand

Over the course of ten days in March 2014 in Sochi, Russia, the Paralympics will bring together the world’s top athletes with physical disabilities to represent their countries and compete in the world’s toughest games. Second only to the Olympics themselves, the Paralympic Games are a major international multi-sport event that redefine what makes a champion. These extraordinary individuals battle in the same stadiums for the gold, silver, and bronze medals, and in the presence of the same flaming torch as the Olympic athletes.
