Her recovery was so rapid that she started competing on a regular bicycle - then progressed to a point that has seen her earn one of just 11 places in a top women’s professional cycling team.So in one year she has gone from an expectation of competing in the 2012 Paralympics to signing with the Dutch Rabobank's women's cycling team and dreaming about potentially competing in the 2016 Olympics. This is the best story I have ever heard of an athlete recovering his or her stride!
Van der Vorst is hoping her form escalates to such a level that she will be able to compete at the 2016 Olympics.
After an accident in 2010 my body started to change and after a long/ hard rehab period I am back on my own feet again! For me a new competition has started now, I don’t know were or when it is gone finish but I will succeed and I will run!Monique van der Vorst
