The hopes and dreams of UK Olympic sprinter James Ellington seemingly were shattered on a Spanish road in January, when a motorcycle piloted by his training partner Nigel Levine collided head-on with a car. Ellington, who had competed in the 100 meter and 4X100 meter relay at the Rio Olympics last summer, suffered a broken tibia and pelvis and fractures in both eye sockets. “I do not know how me or my training partner Nigel are still alive,” he wrote on Instagram from his hospital bed. The injuries “are likely to end their careers,” wrote the Guardian in an article published on Jan. 18.
Six months later, a press release issued today announced that Ellington has “joined forces with Invibio Biomaterial Solutions and CarboFix Orthopedics on his road to recovery and his overall ambition to return to the world stage of athletic competition.” This, then, is a story about how one individual’s determination braced by advances in medical technology can overcome adversity and, ultimately, inspire.
