Mallory Weggemann | US Paralympic Swimmer Pre-London 2012 on Trans World Sport


We filmed with US Paralympic swimmer, Mallory Weggemann, before the 2012 London Paralympics. She was paralysed from the waist down after an epidural injection to treat post-shingles back pain. A last minute reclassification in 2012 hampered her performance in London. But she’ll be competing in eight events in Rio.
