Jeff Waldmuller - USA
Where do you work and what are your professional qualifications?
I am a Research & Development Prosthetist (CP) for Ottobock in Salt Lake City.
Number of years working at Ottobock?
What other Paralympic Games or sport events have you worked at?
I worked as CP at several sport events like the Houston and Dallas Marathon, the Texas Independence Relay, several Triathlon races and many other adaptive running and sports clinics. I also supported at the World Para Alpine Ski Races (NAC Huntsman Cup) and the Endeavor Games.
What was your favorite Paralympic memory?
As I have not been working at the Paralympic Games yet, I have no specific memory, but the growth and recognition of adaptive sports as a whole is something I am proud to have been a part of.
These are your first Games: What inspired you to apply?
It always has been my dream to attend the Paralympic Games - either as an athlete or as a prosthetist. That’s why I am often getting involved in adaptive sports, always looking for opportunities to support the Para sport community. Now I will have the chance in Tokyo and I am really excited.
What are you looking forward to in Tokyo?
I'm looking forward to being part of the Paralympic Games and supporting the Para athletes - and of course also to the Japanese food and the culture.
Last but not least: Let us know what ‘See you in Tokyo!’ means in your language!
‘See you in Tokyo!’ - which means that we will all get together in Tokyo for a great sport event in order to push the boundaries of the human body, mind and spirit. We will advocate for equality in sport and in the community. Despite all challenges, I am sure, we will succeed and inspire all.
