Alice Luo was a national level swimmer who represented Chinese-Taipei, Tawiann prior to her disability that was sustained in 2002 from a freak accident. The brake and transmission system of a rental truck used for moving preperations (that Alice and her partner were using to move out of Atlanta, GA in the U.S.A) had failed and Alice was hit with the moving vehicle which pinned her to the ground while aquiring a spinal cord injury that left her body paralyzed from the chest down. She met Coach Mark Maxwell in 2004 at the U.S. Paralympic tryouts, but did not make her debut in paralympic swimming until 2006 representing Chinese Taipei. She made appearances in the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games in the 50 m Free, 100 m Free and 100 m Breastroke & the 2012 London Paralympic Games in the 200 m IM, 100 m Free & 100 m Breasktroke amongst various international competitions under Coach Mark Maxwell. She swam for the Blue Dolphins from 2012-2014 before retiring from swimming in 2015.
