This after doctors initially told him they didn’t know if he’d ever walk again.
*BBC Article: James Ellington: “I was thinking at the beginning that if I keep my leg, I will be back, and even if I don’t keep my leg, I will still be back competing in the Paralympics.” Ellington now has a carbon fiber rod in his right leg and his pelvis is held together by nails and a metal plate. One of the nails actually snapped when he was lifting weights in the gym.
