STEPHANIE DIXON CAME HOME
FROM THE SUMMER PARALYMPICS in Athens with eight—count
them—eight medals. The swimmer’s individual and team performance
included gold in the 100-metre backstroke, six silver medals and a bronze. She
has a total of 15 medals in her career, including five gold medals at the Sydney
Paralympics in 2002. The psychology student, who was born with one leg, is the
reigning Vikes female athlete of the year.
