BRANDON LYONS

After graduating from Penn State in 2012, Brandon took a corporate job in Washington DC. In May of 2014, he was involved in a freak accident that broke his T5/T6 vertebrae leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. He returned to work four months later and completed a marathon five months after the accident. Brandon eventually moved to San Diego and met Ironman champion David Bailey who helped him find his passion for handcycling. In 2017, Brandon moved to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado and in 2019 was named to his first U.S National Team. He went on to win two silver medals at the Para Pan-American Championships and a silver medal at the 2019 UCI Para Cycling World Championships.
