TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Former Arizona Wildcat and Olympic gold medal swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is bringing some inspiration as she gets back in the pool as part of her rehab.

She posted a picture to her Instagram account on Tuesday, wearing goggles before she took a dip.

Right now she's in a hospital in Denver recovering after she was paralyzed below the waist after an ATV crash earlier this month.

Doctors say the odds of her ever walking again are long, but she has been impressing people with her positive attitude.
