David Smith - giving 110 percent

From the BBC:

David Smith was born with a club foot but went on to represent Britain in bobsleigh, karate and rowing.

Then last year, doctors discovered a large tumour embedded in his spine and surgery to remove it led to temporary paralysis.

He has not only now taught himself to walk again but has just been selected to represent Britain in the upcoming World Rowing Championships in Bled, Slovenia. . .

Lovely to hear David talk about what he went through, and to think, here is a man.
