Paralympic medallist walks again

Monique Van der Vorst, a Paralympic silver medallist in hand cycling, lost the use of her legs as a result of an operation that went wrong and an accident when she was a teenager.

Last year she had another accident while training and, in an extraordinary twist, she regained the use of her legs.

She describes her unexplained recovery and her search for a new identity after being disqualified from competing in the Paralympics. #cycling #Monique #sport #story #VanDerVorst
