Because of the war, he lost his ability to walk along with all of the struggles that come with being paralyzed. Through it all he still played his sports that he loved. He also had shoulder surgery in 2011, but that was just a bump in the road for him and continued and went to the Olympics the following year.
The team all wanted to of course win, but to beat Canada; USA's main rivalry.The USA team worked hard together to try their best in the games and gave it there all. It was all something they wanted extremely badly.
