Mark Zupan is the star of the film Murderball, the critically-acclaimed winner of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival's Documentary Audience Award. Paralyzed in a car accident during college, Zupan began playing quad rugby soon after. In 2004 he led team USA to a bronze medal at the Paralympics in Athens, Greece, and most recently, won gold as part of the USA team at the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008.
Mark Zupan’s ability to survive hypothermia and quadriplegia to become a Georgia Tech graduate, civil engineer, two time quad rugby national champion, 2004 quad rugby player of the year, and a world-class Olympic athlete reflect his passion and positive attitude.
A talented author and speaker, Zupan “smashes” stereotypes and shows that everyone is capable of accomplishing amazing feats.
