Very, very impressive.As is the effort by Paralympian Michael Milton of Australia: after losing his leg to cancer as a child, Milton went on to compete at the Winter Paralympics in downhill skiing - he is still the fastest person on one leg down a ski slope.Chasing another dream of representing his country in cycling, his plans were on track when he contracted osophageal cancer this year, almost derailing his plans.
