Tyler Walker in top form
Film footage on the medal hopes of the Paralympics

The monoskier Tyler Walker is one of the favorites for the podium at the 2010 Paralympic Games in Vancouver from March 12-21. The two-times winner of the gold medal at the Winter X Games was born with very little spine and had both legs amputated at the age of four. Tyler recently graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a dual major in International Studies and Geography.

More about his personal story and monoskiing can be found in the film footage and the information graphics that were produced jointly with the athletes.

Besides Tyler Walker, the documentaries “Paralympic Moments“ also feature the following athletes and teams:
- Ice Sledge Hockey / Team Canada
- Martin Braxenthaler / Monoski / Germany
- Danja Haslacher / Alpine Skiing / Austria
- Katarzyna Rogowiec and Marian Balaz / Nordic Skiing / Poland and Slovakia

Altogether eight information graphics as well as the film footage are available for download, free of charge and royalty free, at the Sponsoring Media Center of Allianz: www.sponsoring.allianz.com

Allianz is partner of the International Paralympic Committee and developed the material together with the paralympic athletes.
