Qian is queen of the pool
I have posted the story of Qian Hongyan before. Now, she is training to become an athlete. Wish you all the best, Qian!
She may have been forced to use a basketball as a prosthetic but that has not stopped her ambition to compete on the sporting world's biggest stage.
Qian Hongyan, whose plight touched millions of people around the globe, has joined a swimming club and begun training to fulfill her dream of competing in the 2012 Paralympics in London.
Although Hongyan now has a pair of hi-tech prosthetic limbs, she still uses the basketball from time to time as it helps her get in and out of the pool.
