Amy Van Dyken, the six-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer who became paralyzed when she severed her spinal cord in an ATV crash this summer, says she is determined to walk again.
â€œThere is a possibility that that milestone of me walking again may happen,â€ Van Dyken told ABCâ€™s Robin Roberts in an interview for the ABC News special, â€œThe Year: 2014,â€ which airs on Dec. 23 at 9 p.m. ET. Van Dyken will be featured in a segment about heroes and people who inspire and help others.
â€œWill I do it under my own power? Probably, because Iâ€™m hoping itâ€™s going to be with braces, but will I do it without braces? I donâ€™t know, but just that will be a milestone in and of itself, so letâ€™s do it,â€ she added.
