John Maclean was paralyzed from the waist down back in 1988 when he was hit by a truck while out cycling. He was training for a triathlon at the time. He came back to become the first wheelchair athlete to finish the Ironman World Championship in 1997, swim the English channel, and medal in the Paralympics. It was when he met Ken Ware where his life took an amazing turn and he actually was able to learn to walk again!!
