Amy Van Dyken-Rouen continues to progress in her recovery after severing her spine in a June 6 ATV accident.

The six-time Olympic swimming champion was seen standing up in a video posted on her social media accounts Monday with the hashtag "#IllBeWalkingSoon.”

Van Dyken-Rouen said she was told by doctors she’d probably never walk again after her accident last year. She has walked with machine assistance (video here).
