In the summer of 2009, a 20-year-old powerlifter (Ali McWeeny) was involved in a near fatal boating accident.Â After being sucked into the boat’s propeller, Ali lost her lower leg and was hospitalized for over 3 weeks.Â She was told by doctors that she would never lift again.Â Fortunately, Ali refused to listen and has returned to the platform.
As you’ll see below, Ali is still going strong as she keeps moving forward.
â€œAccept fate, and move on. Don’t yield to the seductive pull of self-pity. Acting like a victim threatens your future.â€
