Weggemann also discusses what advice she gives people who come to her for guidance in overcoming injuries, the purpose of redefining your limitations, and how “it can always be worse.”

Mallory Weggemann became paraplegic at age 18 after an epidural injection to treat back pain in 2008. She returned to the pool and quickly became one of the best Paralympic swimmers in the world. Since her injury, Mallory won a gold medal at 2012 Paralympic Games in the 50 meter freestyle. In 2011, she won an ESPN ESPY for the category of “Best Female Athlete with a Disability”.
