A Boise Paralympian hopeful is inching closer to his goal of becoming a gold medal recipient in the next winter games.

The adaptive skeleton athlete just returned home from the world cup.

The skeleton sport is new to the Paralympics.

When the series of competitions on different tracks around the world were all said and done, Dorian Willes was ranked fourth in the world and third in the U.S.

"It's really cool being the first group of athletes from around the world to be competing on this level with these sports, bobsled and skeleton," Willes says.

Willes has been invited to compete in the world championship games in Park City, Utah this March.
