“When I am in the water, it is one of the few times I forget about the leg and I am completely free — that is who I am."
— Natalie Du Toit

She may not have medaled in the 6.2-mile open-water swim, but Olympic swimmer Du Toit has an incredibly inspiring story. After losing her leg in a motorcycle accident in 2001, the South African decided to swim against able-bodied athletes in this year's Olympics and came in 16th. In September she will compete in the Paralympics.
