Disabled US Swimmer

She is Melissa Stockwell, 28, started her swimming career only after losing her leg to an IED blast in Baghdad in April 2004. In April, after about three years of training, she qualified for the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing. She is shown poolside in Minnesota, where she initially trained on her own. She is an inspiration to everyone not only for swimmers. God Speed Melissa!
