    She may make it to the medal stand in any of the five swimming events she’ll be competing in over the next few weeks at the London Paralympic Games. Then again, she may not.

    But success isn’t measured merely in gold medals for Letticia Martinez.
    Success — as she understands it — is also about making others’ lives better, and if her journey can inspire someone to rise above their own adversity, she will have reason to smile and raise her arm in victory.
