Eighteen-year-old Noah Grove, who had his left leg amputated below the knee when he was only 5 years old, has excelled as a sled hockey player, and his skills and dedication paid off in South Korea when he and other Team USA members captured the gold medal in the Winter Paralympic Games in March.
Grove, of Frederick, Md., is the son of Chris Grove, who won more than 680 races as a trainer based in Maryland. Team USA tied the sled hockey game with only 35 seconds in regulation and then scored a goal in sudden death to defeat the Canadian team.
Grove played in all five games with three goals and three assists.
