    Which one or ones is or are correct and why?

    Diana Golden became the U.S. Alpine Skier of the year skiing on one leg.
    She,who raced against able-bodied skiers, came in 10th.
    In 1988 the U.S. Olympic Committee named her Female Skier of the Year over all other racers, including able-bodied skiers.

    Choose the acceptable sentence(s) that can replace the sentence “She,who raced against able-bodied skiers, came in 10th.”

    a.) She came in 10th, racing against able-bodied skiers.
    b.) Racing against able-bodied skiers, she came in 10th.
    c.) She, racing against able-bodied skiers, came in 10th.

    What would be the correct answer(s)? Anyone knows?

    They're all possible, though a&b sound more natural to me.

    Agreed. The last one would sound natural only in a context where there is contrastive stress: "Both Amy and her husband took part in the race. She, racing against able-bodied skiers, came in 10th. He, on the other hand, trailed in 19th."
