This article focuses on swimmers. In this column, one will read about swimmers such as South African Natalie Du Toit, a 20-year-old who lost her left leg below the knee in a scooter accident in 2001 and who last autumn competed in — the 2004 Short Course World Championships in Indianapolis. On the day he met his doctor, the author had swum a 4,500-meter workout at his beloved Santa Clara Swim Club in California, partly leading the fastest lane. One cannot know what a privilege it is to get up early in the morning and swim several thousand yards with the muscles burning until the day one can take the seat in the waiting room of a cancer ward.
