Sophie Delezio is all grown up. Now, she dreams of becoming a Paralympian.

Sophie Delezio fell victim to two life threatening accidents. Miraculously, she survived and is now a young woman with big dreams.

Twelve years ago, Sophie Delezio suffered third-degree burns to 85 per cent of her body after a car slammed into her Sydney childcare centre.

The then two-year-old lost both feet, some fingers, and her right ear in the horrific accident.

Unbelievably, she was struck again in 2006 at a pedestrian crossing.

Sophie after her first accident in 2003, where she was trapped under a car that drove into her child car centre.

Today, the little girl — who became a household name as the nation tracked her brave recovery — is all grown up.

Not only that, she’s a keen rower with dreams of becoming a paralympian.

Sophie Delezio is now 13 and dreams of rowing in the Paralympic Games.

The 13-year-old has loved the water ever since she was a baby, but was forced to abandon her goal of becoming a professional swimmer due to her many skin-grafting operations, The Daily Telegraph reports.

Now, she has taken up rowing instead — and wants to make it to the Paralympics.

“I needed to keep fit with some other sport. All my friends at school were talking about how great rowing was, so I decided to join, ” Sophie told Lisa Wilkinson on the Today show, this morning.

“I first started off as a cox for my school and then I joined the Balmain Rowing for Para-rowers.”

Sophie told The Sunday Telegraph “the Paralympics is my dream”.

“I did a few rowing machine tests beforehand to learn how to row and then we gradually got on the water,” she said.

“It was nerve-racking, but it was fun. It’s also a really good sport for me to build up my muscles and help my mobility.’’

Sophie Delezio dreams of competing in the Paralympics. A book by Sally Collings tells her story.

The Year 9 student has joined the Balmain Rowing Club and uses a prosthetic hand attached to her right oar and prosthetic legs to row in the single skulls for Balmain.
