US Open Ball Girl who is Amputee

A n interesting piece about a girl who is a ball girl for the US Open and is an amputee. I anticipated a fluff piece spun as an "inspirational" story, but it steered pretty well away from that. They talked about her role as the first individual with a disability as a ball girl at the US Open, but also about her athletic career, and running both marathons and triathlons. As the interviewer mentions, calling her disabled is almost a misnomer, because with the right technology, she does not have much of an impairment.

Thanks for supporting Maine VRC.
