Olympic Swimmer Amy Van Dyken
« on: June 24, 2014, 05:55:10 PM »
I live in Colorado and she is pretty much a home town hero and the news has regular updates on her rehabilitation from a nasty ATV crash.  What amazes me most is how she is maintaining such a positive attitude and how she accommodating she is to the press.  She could have told everyone to pound sand and the press would have no choice but to oblige.

She was out in public on July 27th at a fundraiser that she was planning on attending before her accident.  In her interview she said that she was going to learn how to drive this week.  From what I have seen on her facebook page and her tv interviews, she is doing remarkably well considering being paralyzed.  My guess is she will be fine despite the suckage of an injury of that magnitude.
