The Girl in the Photo - Amputee Sprinter Aimee Mullins

This morning, as I was looking at the photo I posted last night of the woman running on the beach, I decided to try to find out who it was...

It is sprinter, long-jumper, model, actress Aimee Mullins, shown here in a Sports Illustrated article about her (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/sioncampus/06/20/aimee.mullins/):



I saw her in artist Matthew Barney's Cremaster 3 film in 2002 at NYC's Guggenheim Museum.

Here she is in a 1998 interview with TED (though not shown by TED until 2009):


            
A gifted athlete and extraordinary woman...
