Raised in West Hartford, CT, Jimmy Shea is truly an inspirational story. Jimmy has the destinction of being a third generation Olympian. His father, Jim Shea, competed in Nordic combined and cross-country skiing in the 1964 Olympics and his grandfather, Jack Shea, won two gold medals in the 1932 Olympics in speed skating. When Jimmy's family moved back to Lake Placid, Jimmy quickly became adventurous and began taking advantage of the winter sports facilities in Lake Placid. From the day he picked up a sled, he has not looked back. With the odds stacked against him, Jimmy persevered through hardship and sacrifice. There are the well documented stories of Jimmy hitchhiking his way through Europe to train and compete with only his sled by his side. He slept in bobsleds in open sheds. He was not to be denied.
