Rita, Super Sprint Individual Triathlon
“I hit the car and suddenly felt a severe pain in my left leg. I was convinced I would never be able to walk again, let alone run or ride a motorbike. There followed a very dark time, filled with despair and anger. I had to have 18 operations during what seemed like an endless ordeal.
“But thanks to my husband’s incredible support, I bought a mountain bike and with him to motivate me, I was slowly able to ride again. It has taken time and a lot of determination, but four years on, the world already looks so much better. I am now able to jog again (albeit slowly) and we are both registered for the triathlon. I’m going to give it my all!”
