Practice makes the master…

From the man himself

“When I lost the lower half of my leg in an accident, my visions of representing Australia seemed to be destroyed in the blink of an eye. When faced with this situation I had to make a choice, Hide from the world or take it as a challenge and attack it head-on.”

Scott went on to be a four-time Paralympic Gold Medalist.

We cover his journey from losing his leg in a farming accident

  • The mental and emotional resilience required to face a new identity, a new world, and begin your dreams from scratch
  • The power of decision that took him back into the competitive sport as an amputee
  • How we went from being just seconds behind making the podium and the technique he mastered that took him to a gold medal four times over
  • The drive behind ‘winning’ changing form from achievement to contribution
