A Scottish Paralympian has announced that she will be the first blind contestant on the British TV show "Dancing on Ice". Libby Clegg said she would take part in the 2020 season of the show, which pairs celebrities and professional skaters. According to CNN, Clegg won two gold medals at the Rio Paralympics in 2016, in the 100 and 200 meters sprint. "This opportunity came about and I just couldn't pass it up, to be honest. I love challenging myself and experiencing new things." Clegg, who gave birth to her first child just five months ago, is training for the World Para Athletics Championships.
