By 18, she got a new set of prosthesis at the china Rehabilitation Centre in Beijing and got right back to training. Her determination paid off, She began winning medals all over the country, and in 2014 she won the 100m Breaststroke At The Yunnan Provincial Paralympic Games.

Former elite, record-breaking swimmer takes on her most difficult challenge - her son's cancer. But, thanks to some love, support, and love for swimming,... her son (and her family) is stronger than ever. Mary Ellen Blanchard Warta is a well-known figure in Atlanta. She was a champion swimmer at Stanford University, breaking the U.S. Open record in the 200-yard breaststroke and in 1989 and 1991, she went on to win 10 National titles. While she swam at Stanford, the team won four straight NCAA swimming championships. In 2011, she was inducted into the Gwinnett Sports Hall of Fame in Georgia. In 2012, Mary Ellen's son Jonas was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare cancer of the retina, when he was just 3 years old. After getting his right eye removed and starting chemotherapy, just 3 months later Jonas beat his cancer and was fitted with a prosthetic eye. The same year, the president of Swim Across America Janel Joregensen-McArdle and former Stanford teammate of Mary Ellen reached out to her to talk about her family's story. Swim Across America is non-profit that puts on open water swim events to raise money for children like Jonas who are fighting cancer. After speaking to the group in Atlanta, Mary Ellen decided to start Team Jonas—and was ecstatic to use swimming to help find a cure for childhood cancer. "I felt that our gift to Swim Across America was our family's story," says Mary Ellen. Just 2 swimmers signed up that first summer, raising $2,500, but today, Team Jonas is 60 swimmers strong and has raised over $23,000. The Swim Across America Atlanta group has raised well over $1 million since 2013 and hopes to raise $500,000 this year. "People want to fight cancer and that's how we unite," says Swim Across America's Director of Events, Megan Melgaard. Swim Across America is the inspired sequel to a triumphant Run Across America completed by the two founders of SAA, Jeff Keith and Matt Vossler in 1985. In 1987, Keith and Vossler decided to bring their cause back home and transitioned from running to swimming for a cure with a focus on raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention, and treatment. All proceeds from the 2016 and 2017 Atlanta swim support pediatric oncology and leukemia research at the Swim Across America Lab, located at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Three times gold medalist in the Olympics, Chinese swimmer Sun Yang is geared up for the upcoming competitions in the 2017 National Games in China’s coastal city of Tianjin. Sun will compete in seven events, including 200 meter, 1,500 meter freestyle, three relay races and 4x100 meter medley relay. As a swimming champion, Sun is not likely to meet strong competitors in the National Games, but he said he would treat the event as an important opportunity to train himself. "My focus is not to win the championship at the National Games, but to take the chance to train myself. I will try my best to swim like I always do in major games. I expect to gather experiences through more swim and find my own tempo," said Sun. Sun believes that like everyone else in the international swimming arena, it is imperative to learn newer tactics and be able to handle any emergency beautifully. "I will do my best in every competition to toughen my personality," he added. Sun withdrew from men's 1,500 meter freestyle of the 17th FINA World Championships in July for physical exhaustion. But this time Sun said he was confident of dealling with the intensive competitions. "Based on my level of training, it will be okay as long as I get enough time to rest. I finished 1,500 meter in little over 15 minutes in the trainings about two weeks ago. So based on that, I'm confident of getting good results," said Sun. The 13th National Games open in Tianjin on Sunday night and will run till Sept 8. More than 8,000 athletes are joining the competitions. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20170829/8059627.shtml#!language=1 Subscribe us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/CCTVPlus CCTV+ official website: http://www.cctvplus.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus

Life is always changing, We may have to face many challenges in our life. But if you put your hope over every challenge, you can turn the impossible to possible like this little girl.In 2000, four-year-old Qian Hongyan lost both her legs in a terrible accident, where she nearly lost her life. Her family were worried that the amputation might also take away her energy and spirits. The poor family who were living in a rural village in Yunnan province in China farmed and produced silk for their living. They were not capable to provide prosthetic legs for their baby. To cope with her situation, her grandfather collected an old basket ball, cutted into half and attached to her lower part of the body to balance herself. Gradually, the little girl learnt to walk on her hands using wooden pieces with handles. She used the same tools for years to move around and the locals named her, ‘basket ball girl’.In 2000, four-year-old Qian Hongyan lost both her legs in a terrible accident, where she nearly lost her life. Her family were worried that the amputation might also take away her energy and spirits. The poor family who were living in a rural village in Yunnan province in China farmed and produced silk for their living. They were not capable to provide prosthetic legs for their baby. To cope with her situation, her grandfather collected an old basket ball, cutted into half and attached to her lower part of the body to balance herself. Gradually, the little girl learnt to walk on her hands using wooden pieces with handles. She used the same tools for years to move around and the locals named her, ‘basket ball girl’.In 2005, Qian Hongyan gained the widespread attention of Chinese and international media. It became a talking point in the country where disability was not a topic being discussed. It also became a turning point in the life of this ten year old girl. Lot of good people came forward to support her. As a result, she got the oppurtunity to travel more than 1,600 miles to Beijing and be fitted with her first pair of legs. Every step of her journey became a sensational story and it also revealed the challenges faced by disabled people in China.In 2007, she completed her primary school with the help of donations. However, the 11-year-old realized that her family did not have enough money to continue her education. But she didn’t get disappointed with the situation. She chose to create her own destiny. She returned to Yunnan province where she was encouraged to join South of the Cloud, one of the first swimming clubs in China for people with disability. But it was a big challenge for this double amputee. She tried many times without success. She never expected she could float on water. But she really put her mind into the sport.In 2007, Qian again caught the attention of the country. She recorded one gold medal and two silver medals in the Chinese National Paralympics Swimming Competition. In the following year, she was also awarded three silver medals in the same competition. It was her dream to represent China in the Paralympics in London 2012. But she lost her grandfather just before the Paralympic qualifiers in 2011. She managed to achieve a bronze medal in the race but it wasn’t enough to get into the team. She became depressed and hid herself from public for a while. Then she returned home, where her family welcomed her like a hero. After a short break Qian Hongyan returned to hard training and continued achieving many valuable goals. Her Paralympic dream gave her too much pressure. However, nothing is impossible for a willing heart.In September 2014, Qian put her incredible life stories back in the spotlight followed by an amazing victory in the 100m breaststroke final during the Yunnan Provincial Paralympic Games. Qian Hongyan is an inspiration and pride to the country and the world. This young lady proved that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
