Guelph IndyCar driver Robert Wickens took to social media Tuesday to give a progress update after suffering a spinal cord injury in August.
The Canadian driver suffered the injury at Pocono Raceway over the summer and has been rehabilitating ever since.
In a video posted to Twitter in late October, Wickens revealed he was left paraplegic.
“Did my first slide transfer as a paraplegic today. My upper body is getting stronger every day,” the tweet read.
He posted another video to Twitter and Instagram Tuesday showing him walking with the aid of a Gait Trainer and physiotherapists.
People reacting on social media are commending the race car driver for being open in sharing his recovery.
