Blind skier

BBC

Ex-soldier who lost his sight defending a woman being attacked has set a record for skiing at almost 101mph downhill.

Congratulations to that man and an inspiration to people. I hope his attackers can't sit down at the moment because "Mr Big" took a liking to them in the showers

You just beat me to it! was just reading this myself. What a bloke!

And I hope his attackers are always designated 'soap picker upper!'

Sorry to be cynical, but they probably got let off with community service or somesuch rubbish.

Good to see the Beeb actually publishing a good soldier story. More of the same please! :lol:

Brilliant. Well done to him and St Dunstans the charity that supports ex Servicemen who are visually impaired or blind. It makes you feel very humble indeed.

I presume this is the chap I met whilst in Les Arcs on AT in February (I'm guessing there aren't that many British blind downhill skiers!). A fantastic chap!
