Third-year Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma student Jordan Broisin won four medals at the French National Adaptive Skiing Championships at Pra-Loup in March 2016, including a gold for the Super-G. A rising star on France’s national adaptive ski team, Jordan is enrolled at Phelma under a special athletics program that allows him to combine training and classes. He is also studying for a Master’s in Management at business school IAE.
Jordan lost his left leg after a motorcycle accident in 2009. An avid skier, he worked tirelessly to get back on skis after his injury. He currently skis on a prosthesis specially developed by Phelma materials engineering students and manufactured by local company Chabloz Orthopédie.
Jordan hopes to complete his engineering and business degrees in 2017 and has his sights set on a medal at the 2018 Paralympic Games.
