Emily Harman, the host of Onward Podcast, interviews world champion para-cyclist Clara Brown. Clara, was an avid athlete as a competitive gymnast, runner, and skier before sustaining an incomplete spinal cord injury at the C5/C6 level at age 12. Clara moved to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, where they specialize in spinal cord and brain injury rehabilitation, and it was there that she began to get some feeling and function back. She started walking on the treadmill and made great progress. A few months later, however, Clara began experiencing excruciating pain in her left leg and was diagnosed with avascular necrosis, which was cutting off the blood supply and causing bone to die. Listen to this episode and learn about Clara’s amazing journey and how she is racing towards the Paralympics in Tokyo.
