Teri Walker | Mormon Olympians

[sc:top_left_adsense300x250_1] The life story of this famous Mormon athlete was truly inspirational. Before the 1988 games in Calgary, Teri Walker was informed by doctors that she had contracted multiple sclerosis and that she would soon be unable to walk. However, rather than let the disease get the better of her this celebrity Mormon athlete quickly learned how to ski and soon became one of the greatest competitors for the disabled Winter Olympics, winning a Gold medal before her horrible disease could take away her mobility. However, the disease never beat Walker who has yet to require the use of a wheelchair some twenty years later. This famous Mormon athlete maintains an active presence in the LDS Church.
