This is the incredible true story of how a chance comment to a friend led to the olympic Bobsleigh track in Innsbruck in Austria. This story is told from two perspectives - Ruth as the disabled traveller and her friend Steve who made the trip with her. Fascinating and worrying insights into the challenges facing those in wheelchairs. This though provoking and heartwarming story shows how the human spirit can overcome the incredible odds. The book also includes the amazing story of Amar Latif the blind person that won the Disabled Entrepreneur of the Year Award and founded the travel company Traveleyes.
Despite having to deal with Arthrogryposis (which affects her joints, muscles and nerve endings) Ruth has always lived her life large and she doesn't like to feel anything has beaten her. With the support of her family and friends she competed for many years in her favourite sports of swimming, skiing, athletics and horse riding. Although she retired from competitive sport several years ago, in between working full time she describes herself as always looking for a new and exciting adventure.
