Masters could race up to seven times over nine days of medal competition through March 13.

Oksana Master Biography, Wiki

Oksana Masters is an American Paralympic rower and cross-country skier of Ukrainian descent from Louisville, Kentucky. She was born on June 19, 1989 with several radiation-induced birth defects, including tibial hemimelia (resulting in different leg lengths), missing weight-bearing shinbones in her calves, webbed fingers with no thumbs, and six toes on each foot.

She was abandoned by her birth parents at a Ukrainian orphanage where she lived until age 7. After she turned 7, Oksana was adopted by Gay Masters, an unmarried American speech therapy professor with no biological children.

After moving to the United States in 1997, both of Oksana’s legs were eventually amputated above the knee—she left leg at age eight and her right leg at age 13—as they became increasingly painful and unable to support her weight.

When she arrived in the U.S. her mother was a professor at the University at Buffalo; she moved to Louisville, Kentucky in 2001 when her mother took a faculty position at the University of Louisville and graduated from the city’s Atherton High School in 2008.
