Tough Sledding – The story of the 2002 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team

Former Boston Bruins Captain Rick Middleton (and Legends Hall of Fame member) and Tom Moulton (Legends Board member) coached the 2002 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team in Salt Lake City, Utah, to an unlikely gold medal.

The team inspired the city and the game and was played in front of a capacity crowd of 8,600 people at the E-Center.

The time has come to tell the dramatic story through a scripted film. This story has similarities to the Disney produced movie “Miracle” that told the story of a bunch of college kids who beat the unbeatable Russians in the 1980 Olympics and went on to win Gold!

We believe our story, this movie “Tough Sledding” will tug at your heart and bring you out of your seat like no movie since “Miracle”. There is a depth at the heart of “Tough Sledding” and the characters whose stories will drive the movie. It is a story of seeking fulfillment as individuals against a backdrop of obstacles facing the team goal.

Click on our Indiegogo site https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tough-sledding-sports-usa#/ and watch the ripomatic “Tough Sledding” – it will be the first movie about a Paralympic sports team. A ripomatic is a short compilation of scenes from other sports movies that will give you a good idea of what our story is all about.
