DENVER — Amy Van Dyken-Rouen said last week she regained reflexes in her knees and ankles.

It’s quite a step in her recovery after the ATV crash less than a year ago that severed her spinal cord. She’s been paralyzed from the waist down.

Friday, the news is even better. According to a report in the Denver Post, she put a video on her Instagram account that shows her walking with crutches and the aid of bionic devices.

Van Dyken-Rouen is a graduate of Cherry Creek High School who won six Olympic gold medals.

She is now back at her home in Arizona continuing her remarkable recovery. She spent a couple of months in rehabilitation at Craig Hospital in Englewood.
