QPR look to van der Vorst
The news of Monique van der Vorst's miraculous recovery from paralysis, enabling her to swap the Paralympics for professional road racing, is provoking excitement down in the Bush. Van der Vorst lost the use of one of her legs when just 13 and was paralysed in both legs when winning Paralympic medals; yet to the amazement of her doctors, she has now made a full recovery and is competing in professional cycling competitions.
The hope is that if van der Vorst can do it, then Kieron Dyer may yet be in with a chance. Of course it is a long shot, as a source close to the club explained: "Recovering from paralysis from the waist down is one thing, but expecting Kieron to play football is a completely different kettle of fish," he said. "Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead but even he might have passed up on the opportunity to treat Dyer. I mean, even the Son of God knows his limits!"
