The Unconventional Road to Rio

Let’s not forget, the true superheroes behind The Games…

Madison De Rozario, 22 ; An Australian Olympian. Madison has overcome more than the average Olympian to represent her country, time and time again. She became paralyzed by a neurological disease called Transverse Myelitis, which inflames the spinal cord. This resulting in her using a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Although that hasn’t stopped Madison from achieving more than the average 22 year old. She is a current T53 class, 800m World Champion. And will represent Australia again on the World Stage, at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio, fifteen days away.
