A note from Peter and Sue:
“wow, what a day – a
Great to see Josh Landmann do so well in the Besancon triathlon – see him finishing below, then enjoying a well-earned drink and catching up with Sue afterward.
We stopped at Nyon’s street food festival on Lac Leman on the way home to carb up – it’s hard work watching these athletes.”
As a result of an accident in 2014 whilst on holiday in Spain I broke my neck having dived into a swimming pool and was left paralyzed from the chest down. Following surgery in Spain and after 2 and a half weeks in Hospital in Mallorca, I returned to the UK by air ambulance for further treatment. It was at that time I was informed by doctors there was a chance I may never walk again.
I’m now 3 1/2 years post accident and my recovery
With stand up skiing an impossibility, I discovered sit-skiing and traveled to Poland in January of 2016 for my first taste of the sport with Active Therapy. This was a life-changing experience that motivated me to train hard. I was spotted by a Team GB coach and I attended my first International Paralympic Committee Alpine Skiing event in the Netherlands at the beginning of November 2016. After being classified (LW12-1) I competed representing Team GB with just six months experience on the slopes and with just 20 days of sit-skiing under my belt I competed in the British National Championships in Tignes, France March 2017 and won the Giant Slalom event.
My ambition is to compete in the Winter Paralympics in Beijing in 2022 and this is only possible by private funding and sponsorships.”
