Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken just reached another milestone on her miraculous road to recovery -- she's now able to stand and support her own weight.
Van Dyken posted a video of her latest accomplishment and said, "I'm starting to get this standing thing down! #amysarmy #werk #IllBeWalkingSoon #GettingFittedForBracesNextWeek"
Van Dyken -- who won four Olympic gold medals in 1996 and two more in 2000 -- severed her spine in an ATV crash in June 2014. Since then she has posted video of her progress ... taking her first steps with the help of an exoskeleton ... and a few months later, pedaling a bike on her own.
