This is part 1 of a series of blogs I will be doing on strength and conditioning for leg amputees.
In this first blog, I will give a little background on myself, I have a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia of the left leg. Having been born with a disability, I have had to adapt to things along the way. Learning and implementing ways I could do things, the other able-bodied children took for granted.
This is quite a good topic for discussion at this present time with the Rio Olympics and Paralympics coming up in the next few weeks and the Russians making the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
As a former elite athlete myself, I think it’s good that they are starting to give out harsher penalties for drug cheats. I read a BBC Sports post this afternoon stating that the IOC (International Olympic Committee) has not banned the whole Russian team from the Olympics.
