Sandra “Sandy” Dukat is an American Paralympic athlete. Born with proximal femoral focal deficiency, she had her right leg amputated above the knee at the age of four. She has competed internationally in alpine skiing, swimming, and triathlon and won 3 bronze medals in alpine ski racing at the 2002 & 2006 Winter Paralympic Games. Sandy was introduced to ROMP early in the planning & development stages of ROMP. Sandy stayed connected with the organization but it was not until the inaugural Climbing for ROMP expedition in 2015 that Sandy became more involved. As a member of the elite climbing team, Sandy’s ties to ROMP became stronger eventually leading her to join the Board of Directors & become a ROMP Ambassador.
“As a life-long prosthetic user, my access to prosthetic care is very important. I value the life-long care I have received and my athletic and personal success is directed related to my mobility. I know the importance of fair & equal access to prosthetic care for all so I will maintain my commitment to ROMP to help all those in need of care.”
