TCO releases first comeback film featuring Paralympic gold medalist
During her pursuit for another Paralympic gold medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympic games, swimmer Mallory Weggemann severely injured her arm. For many athletes, it would have meant the end of a career, but Mallory’s not like most athletes.
Instead of giving up, she is working harder than ever to once again shatter expectations.
An Eagan native, Mallory discovered Training HAUS in 2018 and quickly realized it had the resources she needed to forge her path to Tokyo. Under the guidance of physical therapist and sports performance coach Russell Linville, she finds creative new ways to blend traditional rehabilitation with strength and conditioning, all while being surrounded by likeminded athletes.
She approaches every day with fierce determination, focused on one singular goal: reclaiming her throne atop the podium at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Mallory’s Comeback Film
TCO Comeback Films
Mallory’s compelling story is the first of many upcoming TCO Comeback films featuring real TCO patients and Training HAUS athletes making incredible returns from injury.
For some, a comeback means claiming another gold medal, while for others it simply means being able to play with the kids again. Everyone’s story may be different, but every comeback is an accomplishment worth celebrating, and an opportunity to inspire others.
The people in these films are truly remarkable.
They all agreed to share their stories not for themselves, but for others. They’ve felt the fear and loneliness that comes with facing the unknown, and have persevered to rise above it. We hope their stories will touch lives, and give people the hope and confidence they need to overcome adversity.
A sincere thank you to all of you who welcomed us into your lives. You’ve started something special. And, like Mallory, we’re just getting started.
Visit TCOmn.com/Comeback, where all films will be shared as they are released.
Most importantly, thank you to the patients, families, athletes, and communities who continue to put their trust in us. We are honored and proud to be a part of your stories.
