The cyclist Lorian Graham (b. 1977) trained at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) between 2002 and 2005, and became Australia's National Road Cycling Champion in January 2005. In July of the same year, during a training ride near Leipzig, Germany, she was one of five Australian cyclists injured in the tragic road accident that claimed the life of rider Amy Gillett. Graham, who was left with a shattered kneecap, has been undergoing rehabilitation therapy ever since, and recently resumed training on a modified bike. She had hoped to recover in time to defend her national title in January 2006, but by the time of the event her injured leg had yet to regain full extension or bend. She works as an ambassador for the Amy Gillet Safe Cycling Foundation, which promotes awareness of cyclists among other road users.
