Anna Harkowska

Anna Harkowska (Polish pronunciation: [ˈanna xarˈkɔfska]; born 20 March 1980)[2][3] is a Polish cyclist. At the age of 14, she won two gold medals in the 1992 Barcelona Paralympics as a swimmer, however an ear infection left her unable to continue.[4] She later trained in running and took up a triathlon, and eventually focused her efforts on cycling. In May 2002, she was hit by a car in Szczecin, suffering 26 fractures in her legs and nearly losing her left leg. After several surgeries and months of rehabilitation, she returned to professional cycling.[5] In 2012, she participated in the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, where she won three silver medals.
