It doesn’t happen that often, but two-time world surfing champion Tyler Wright does know what it’s like to be wiped out in the water.

Tyler was hit so hard with post-viral syndrome, at one point it even looked as if she’d never get back on her surfboard.
But how she fought back is what makes Tyler Wright a real champ.
