PHOENIX — Former Olympic gold medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen continued her inspirational recovery Monday, when she kicked her husband’s hand.
“HUGE day at PT. Standing and releasing one hand, kicking Toms hand!! #ThisIsHuge #SCI #AmysArmy,” she wrote on Instagram.
The other video shows Van Dyken-Rouen standing up and letting go of one of her hand supports.
Ever since an ATV accident severed her spine and left her paralyzed a year ago, Van Dyken-Rouen has been making improbable steps in physical therapy, including working out in rehab just weeks after her setback.
