Attitude to feature Para-Canoeist Scott
Martlew on Sunday 27 April
In 2010, 17-year-old Scott Martlew had everything going for him - a
bright student and successful rugby player. But a blow to his leg during
a rugby match left him fighting for his life. As his body tried to fight
off bacteria in his blood, his condition deteriorated.
His leg was amputated to save his life.
Four years on and Scott is competing against top able-bodied canoeists
and he's well on his way to representing New Zealand in para-canoeing at
the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games
