SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Olympic champion swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen has been moved from intensive care to a regular hospital room, nine days after severing her spinal cord in an all-terrain vehicle accident.
Hospital spokeswoman Jamie Grimm says the six-time gold medalist was in good condition and moved from the ICU on Sunday morning.
Van Dyken-Rouen remarked on the move on Twitter.
FINALLY out of ICU! Now I have an amazing view. Sorry the blinds are in pic, but you still get the idea. http://t.co/c5Bl9WhhmA

The 41-year-old swimmer plans to do her rehabilitation at a Denver-area hospital.
She won four gold medals at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and two more in Sydney before retiring from competition.
