Mike Ballard was on the show in June 2016 not long after he returned to the UAE in his then new state of paralysis due to a rugby accident. He was wheelchair bound and coming to terms with that being his life now. Over 3 years later Mike comes back on the show to talk about life, his progress and his new goals which is is qualify for the Paralympics. At the time of recording the 2020 Paralympics had not being cancelled, it now has and I am sure Mike is firmly set on the 2024 games.
After the session I did a training session with Mike which I would suggest you take a look at right here and see the shape he is in, the challenges he faces and the strength that he has. Inspiring on a number of levels.
Enjoy the show.
