In 2011, at the age of 24, my life was turned upside down. While competing in a 100km ultra marathon in the Australian outback, I encountered an out of control grass fire. Trapped by the blaze, I suffered full thickness burns to 65% of my body.
My story is forever divided into two parts: before the fire, and after the fire.
I was choppered out of the remote desert barely alive and wasn’t expected to survive. I lost seven of my fingers, spent over six months in hospital, underwent over 200 operations and spent two years in recovery.
That’s not the only goal I’ve smashed since being told I’d never walk, run or be independent again.
