Former U.S. Olympic high jumper Jamie Nieto was partially paralyzed from the waist down after landing on his head while attempting a backflip in April, 2016. Doctors were uncertain if he would regain the ability to walk.
After over a year of surgeries and intense rehabilitation, Nieto walked into his own wedding. Congratulations to Nieto for defying the odds, and to the happy couple.
