After a good run up, everything felt good until I pushed off from the plate and my rear blade caught on the edge of the sandpit throwing me off. Landing face down, momentarily I couldn’t move, and couldn’t feel my arms. Stretchered out of the stadium on a spinal board and straight to hospital for examination. As a double amputee, who’s already lost so much, could I really be facing more? When I was blown up, I knew I couldn’t die, because my wife hadn’t given me permission… she might just kill me now!
Still managed to come in 3rd despite missing all following jumps. Further investigation and treatment ahead back in the UK before I’ll be allowed back to training.
