Swimmer Amy Van Dyken leaving Colorado hospital
August 14, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is being released from a Denver-area hospital to continue her rehabilitation after an all-terrain vehicle crash left the 41-year-old paralyzed just below the waist.

Van Dyken-Rouen is leaving Craig Hospital on Thursday, just over two months after the accident in Arizona on June 6.

The six-time Olympic gold medalist will speak to media after her release. She has been keeping fans informed about her recovery on social media, including boasting on Twitter earlier this month that she had finally graduated from a hospital bed to a regular bed. She also posted a photo of her new wheelchair.

The odds of her ever walking again are long but she has impressed her doctors and fans with her positive attitude.
