The Golden Girl

This image of is of Jessica Long, just after she had won Gold in her 100m Butterfly race and just before she pulled on those prostheses and walked away. Want to know what she looks like out of the pool? This is she.

For the record, her time was 1'10". Which, for those interested, was the time for the able bodied women's world record back around 1960. Isn't that simply fantastic?
