Twenty-three years old and living with rheumatoid arthritis in both legs, Han decided to climb a mountain that was 1708 meters high. Once he reached the summit 17 hours later, he felt the rush of courage he would need to turn life’s barriers into possibilities.

When Han’s left leg was amputated seven years later after he was diagnosed with osteomyelitis, Han reflected on that triumphant moment on the mountain, and he decided to relentlessly pursue his lifelong dream to become a world-class athlete.

Quote It’s challenging… setting a goal, preparing to reach the goal, and all the sweat that goes with it. That’s when I feel alive and that’s when I’m glad that I play hockey. Unquote

Han began competing in Para powerlifting, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby—all at the national level in South Korea—but it was on the ice that Han settled into his domain. A few years later, Han was shining as the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Winter Games superstar.
