Hanger Clinic Patient Athletes Shine at 2020 Tokyo Paralympics

September 14, 2021
Hanger Clinic

Hanger Clinic is pleased to announce the results of our 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Team USA patient athletes. From overcoming barriers associated with the COVID-19 pandemic (e.g., 2020 event postponement, no in-person fans or family support, and added logistics around travel and testing) to winning a gold medal while pregnant (Lora Webster) and representing Team USA as the youngest member of the Track & Field team (Ezra Frech), the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic team of Hanger Clinic patient athletes gave us all something to be proud of.

Spanning across at least six different summer Paralympic sports and more than 10 events, the hard work, dedication, and resilience of each athlete was admired by our family of nearly 5,000 Hanger employees, with the biggest supporters being the athletes’ clinicians themselves.
