Holding multiple world records and having won many speed skating competitions against able bodied skaters, Frost does not let his rare genetic disorder - Usher Syndrome - get in the way of his dreams. The biggest of which, is to see the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) sanction his sport.
The IPC has minimum criteria for adoption of a new winter sport, including widespread practice in a minimum of eight countries, and the sport must have a minimum of two world championship competitions. Currently, there is only one world championship in Russia called the Open Blind Cup. Frost has finished first place in both 2010 and 2011. The Impaired Skating Championship is the second.
After a week off, Frost will be joining the Development Paralympic Track Team for the summer. With a goal of making the 2015 PanAm Games, for running track. His ultimate goal is to be number one in multiple sports.
