Paralympic gold medalist and NH native signs book deal
Written by NH1 News on .
2012 Paralympic Game winner Victoria Arlen announced that she has signed a book deal with Howard/Simon & Schuster.
The announcement came on Tuesday via Arlen's Facebook and Instagram pages.
Arlen, who took home three silver and one gold medal in the 2012 Paralympics, signed with ESPN in 2015 as an on-air personality.
In early 2009 at just 11 years old, Arlen was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis and Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis , two extremely rare neurological conditions leaving her paralyzed from the waist down.
Just three years later, Victoria competed and won a Gold medal in London at the Paralympics. She holds the World record in the 100 and 400 Meter freestyle in swimming.
