Aimee Mullins is awesome. And not just in the colloquial sense — she is truly awe-inspiring. She’s been named one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World. She graduated from Georgetown University in 1998 with a dual degree in history and diplomacy. As a model, she has walked runways in London and Paris. An aspiring actress, she has performed on both television and in movies.
But then, Mullins isn’t some shallow slashie mactress. First she was a world-class athlete, having run track at Georgetown and holding records in sprints and the long jump. In January she was voted President of the Women’s Sports Foundation by the likes of Danica Patrick and Maria Sharapova. Her accomplishments are each impressive enough on their own, but when you take into account that she’s done it all on silicone and titanium legs, she’s just making the rest of us look bad.
