Making a comeback: Olympic/Paralympic Medalist Cheri Becerra-Madsen wants to come back for the gold. She was 4 when an unknown virus attacked her spinal cord, paralyzing her. At 17, she stormed her way onto the wheelchair-racing scene and set world records, medaled in the Paralympics and Olympics, and became the first Native American woman to compete in an Olympic event. After devoting the last 12 years to her husband and two daughters, she's back. Her records have since been broken — and she wants them back.
