Joe Berenyi,  a highly decorated U. S. Paralympian, won a silver medal in cycling (3000m individual pursuit) at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

Joe's story is a remarkable one.  Back in the early 90s, he found success in a handful of amateur cycling races, but, in 1994, he put his bike away when a construction accident cost him his right arm and left kneecap.  Nearly 13 years later, Joe decided to join some of his neighbors for a ride and his love of cycling was reignited from there.  He only had 3 years of experience riding at the national level when he won 3 medals and set a world record at the 2012 Paralympics in London.  Since that time, Joe has participated in 4 World Championships, winning an additional 6 medals (4 gold, 2 silver),

Joe was named the USOC's men's Paralympic Athlete of the Year in 2015, and was nominated for an ESPY in '15 in the Best Male Athlete with a Disability category.
