Olympic star Van Dyken severs spine in accident




6 gold medals in swimming per her wikipedia page. I certainly wish her to brave this storm.


Lord, have mercy…



Wow. That is really sad. I wonder if this will prevent her from continuing in the Olympics? I hope it doesn’t. I will pray for her that she heals completely and soon.


I don’t know what they do for a severed spine. I hope she will be able to walk. A freak accident. I will be praying for her.
