Paralympian Jessica Long’s greatest triumph
How does a girl with congenital defects in her legs born to a teenage mother in Siberia and placed for adoption become one of the most decorated female athletes in US history? And what does that same young woman, achieving unprecedented success in Paralympics swimming, do when she realizes that despite the outward honors and endorsements deals, she’s still filled with anger and brokenness on the inside?
