Yikes! I’m not sure I’d be happy with the knowledge of that backstory. Couldn’t the foster parents have said that the family were in a traffic accident or some such - not something which would leave me with PTSD as well as an amputee?

They strapped themselves to a bomb, held Haven and detonated the device, killing themselves instantly and blasting their tiny daughter 12 meters out of their hut.

America's purpose is to provide a haven to people like her

TMI folks !

I think haven has suffered enough without the need of any more of comments about the injury.

Please allow haven to enjoy her well earned Olympian achievement.

Glad I read this article. I’ll keep an eye out for her if she is still competing. Bright and bubbly with a positive outlook. Admirable.

Just listening to some of their stories today I was amazed at the variety. One swimmer lost an arm and a leg to a shark attack, but his swimming style was really powerful.
