Full Bio

Mark Zupan was paralyzed in a car accident while in high school, he began playing quad rugby in college. In 2004 he lead team USA to a bronze medal at the Paralympics in Athens, Greece. Mark has captured four Most Valuable Player awards at tournaments held around the country and was just recently named US Quad Rugby Associations Athlete of the Year.

Mark’s goal for the 2008 Paralympic Games, like many of his teammates, was to win gold. His other goal was not to simply win, but to dominate the competition in Beijing. Following Team USA’s romp through the tournament, Zupan accomplished everything he wanted.

Zupan began playing wheelchair rugby in Atlanta in 1996 and has become a mainstay on the U.S. Paralympics Wheelchair Rugby National Team over the past several years. He found rugby while in rehab. An avid contact sport enthusiast, he says wheelchair rugby was the best fit for him after his injury. He was prominently featured in the Academy Award nominated documentary “Murderball,” and has become one of the team’s most recognized faces.

In addition to his position at C. Faulkner Engineering, Zupan tours the country as a motivational speaker. His autobiography, “Gimp,” was released in October 2006.
