The details (from wikipedia)


Ilke Wyludda (born 28 March 1969) is a discus thrower from Germany.

She set eleven junior records at discus throw (and also two at shot put), and became junior world champion. Between 1989 and 1991 she recorded 41 successive wins until beaten by Tsvetanka Khristova at the 1991 World Championships. Wyludda never won the world championships, but she became Olympic champion in 1996.

In early January 2011 Wyludda revealed in Bild that she had to have her right leg amputated because of Sepsis. After losing her leg she returned to athletics and began entering para-sport competitions. In 2012, she represented Germany at the London Paralympics becoming the first German athlete to have represented her country at both Olympic and Paralympic Games. In 2014, she entered the IPC European Championships in Swansea, taking the bronze medal in the F57 discus and silver in the shot put.
