Josh Sundquist

Josh Sundquist is a Paralympian and bestselling author who has shared his story at events across the world. At age nine, Josh was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and given a fifty percent chance to live. After a year of chemotherapy treatments, his left leg was amputated. At age thirteen, doctors declared Josh cured of the disease and three years later he started ski racing. 

In 2006, Josh was named to the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team for the 2006 Paralympics in Turino, Italy. Today, Josh represents the United States in international competition as a member of the U.S. Amputee Soccer Team.

Josh's high-energy blend of humor and inspiration motivates audiences to adopt his ski racing motto 1MT1MT (one more thing, one more time) to elevate their performance in sales, customer service, quality improvement, leadership, and more. His life story is a reminder of how all our stories are interconnected and even our smallest actions and decisions impact the world around us.
