Grace Norman is a 2016 Paralympic Gold Medalist. Grace was born with congenital constriction band syndrome in her left leg at birth, which resulted in the amputation of her left leg and right big toe below the knee when she was young. Norman competed in track & field and cross country in high school, where she became the first female amputee to finish on the podium at a high school track & field state championship.

Norman competed in both track & field and paratriathlon at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, becoming the first U.S. athlete to win gold in paratriathlon’s debut as a Paralympic medal event. She currently holds the world records for the 800-meter and 1,500-meter in the T44 classification for track & field. 

In June, the Cedarville University graduate qualified for the Tokyo Paralympics, where Norman will compete in August of 2021. 

On today's podcast, Norman shares how she's preparing for the 2021 Paralympics, her faith journey, how God has revealed himself to her over the past year, and how she was able to handle celebrity at the age of 18 when she won her first Gold Medal.
