She was one of the best, if not the best, surfers in her age (13) category. Then she lost an arm in a shark attack. Came back, beat the best female surfer (outright). Granted she ended up third overall, but she's still considered one of the top 5 female surfers.

Coming on the heels of Ali, the French Open, the great NHL and NBA final rounds of their respective playoffs, I guess it's just another sports story.
