This spring, Upland para-cyclist Samantha Bosco was sitting on top of the world. She had earned an ESPY nomination for Best Female Athlete with a Disability and had earned a place on Team USA for the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo. But a devastating accident the month before the competition rendered her unable to compete, and her dreams of winning a gold medal were put on hold. But with the same bravery and determination that enabled her to overcome a botched surgery at the age of 11 that left her on crutches, she has decided that she is going for the gold at the Paralympics in Paris in 2024. She and her husband Andrew tell her inspirational story.
