Sel aastal 30-34-aastaste naiste seas triatloni Euroopa meistriks kroonitud inglanna Claire Danson avaldas sotsiaalmeedias, et jäi augusti lõpus raske avarii tagajärjel halvatuks.

"Olen nüüd valmis oma lugu jagama - lugu sellest, kuidas Euroopa meister ratastooli jäi," kirjutas Danson Instagramis.

Triatleet oli parasjagu jalgrattatreeningul, kui ta traktoriga kokku põrkas ning tõsiselt vigastada sai. Dansoni mõlemad kopsud said vigastada, lisaks murdis ta luid sõrmes, mõlemas randmes, õlavarreluus ja õlgades. Samuti vigastas ta kõiki luid oma kaelas, kusjuures üks kaelalüli lausa murdus, samuti oli mõrasid või murde kõikides naise roietes. "Mulle tehti päris mitmeid operatsioone, et kõike seda parandada ning nüüd on minus päris suur kogus metalli. Kõik see paraneb täielikult ära," selgitas Danson.

"Kahjuks murdus minu selgroog üheksanda rinnalüli koha pealt, mis tähendab, et olen nabast altpoolt halvatud. See on mõistagi asi, mis ei parane. Kuigi mul on väga raskeid hetki, olen oma olukorraga leppinud ning ei lase sel ennast takistada. Kavatsen ka edaspidi teha kõike, mida tahan - sealhulgas triatlonit!" jäi naine positiivseks.

Dansoni õde Alex on sealjuures Inglismaa jäähokikoondise mängija, kes taastub hetkel peavigastusest, mille ta sai, kui lõi oma pea vastu betoonseina ära elukaaslase tehtud nalja üle naerdes.

. It has taken me a while to write this but now I am ready to share my story of the incident that has changed my life for ever; a story of going from European champion at triathlon to life in a wheelchair . On the 28th August I had a collision with a tractor whilst riding my bike. I suffered 2 punctured lungs, broke a finger, both wrists, the head of my humerus and both shoulders. I also fractured all the bones in my neck including a break to one and had multiple fractures and breaks to every one of my ribs. I have had quite a few surgeries to sort all this and now have a large amount of metal in me. All of this will heal fully . Unfortunately I also suffered a complete sever to my spinal cord at T9. This means that I am paralysed from my belly button downwards. This is of course not something that will heal. Whilst I still have hard moments I have accepted the situation I am now in and won’t be letting it stop me do anything that I want to (including triathlon!) . Now you have this info all I ask is for you to remember that I am still exactly the same person. I still have crazy hair and a mad laugh, I am still the clumsiest person you have met and I will still tell the most long winded yet entertaining stories. So please treat me as the same old Claire. Nothing has changed there . Having decided to share my story with you including all the highs and the lows I would like you to follow me and I would like you to learn all about spinal injuries with me. This world is so new to me I want to help educate others as to what it is like and what it involves . Please help me to get this to as many people as possible by reposting and asking people to follow me . Thank you to the amazing sports people who have already been in contact.
