Meet the stars of the Winter Paralympics 2018
Alexander Ehler (Germany)
At 48 years old, Ehler is the oldest member of the German team. Initially hailed as a sporting talent in his home country of Kazakhstan, his career looked to have been ended after a motorcycle accident. But, following an operation which shortened his left leg by nine centimeters, Ehler is now fulfilling his dream of competing in the Olympics, despite only having been a para-athlete for a year.
