SOCHI, Russia (WHAS11)—A local woman is set to compete in the Paralympics that are set to begin in Sochi.

Oksana Masters is from Louisville and is going for the gold in Sochi.

Masters was adopted from a Ukrainian orphanage when she was 7, by UofL physician Dr. Gay Masters, who is in Sochi with her.

Masters was born with many complications, including having both legs amputated above the knee.

WHAS11 has featured her several times, including when she first got to wear high heels.

She will be competing in five Nordin Skiing events in Sochi after winning bronze in rowing during the 2012 summer Paralympics in London.
