Tifany Huot-Marchand, the best French short track speed skater, is so inspiring. Her mental strength and her courage impress us
At the beginning of October, she suffered a terrible accident in the Netherlands during a selection competition for the World Cup. During the semi-finals, Tifany was overtaking when one of her opponents stalled, dragging her down. Victim of a C5 cervical fracture, Tifany finds herself paralyzed. Defying all predictions, she should return to the ice in June at the same time as the other athletes of the French team
