Retirement Series: Nichole Millage

We continue our athlete retirement series by honoring Nichole Millage of the U.S. Women’s Sitting Team.

She was named an alternate for the team that competed at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games, but then got the surprise call to play and won her second Paralympic gold medal.
