We published the first of its kind, comprehensive adaptive climbing manual. Paradox sports had our first film accepted and premiered at two film festivals, mountainfilm in telluride co and the adventure film festival in boulder co. We proudly sponsored paradox sports ambassador and below knee amputee, craig demartino, to compete in the paraclimbing world championships in gijon, spain. Craig earned a bronze medal in the male lower extremity category. The american team of 14 men and women collected seven medals total in the finals, many of whom are friends, ambassadors, and past participants of paradox sports including our board member, maureen beck, an arm amputee, who took home gold in her category. Paradox sports gained media attention again this year including features on abc, national fox news, npr, travel channel, several magazines, and many local newspapers.
