Michael Milton grew up into a skiing family, but after losing his leg to cancer at the age of nine he was determined to be able to ski again. Michael later became the most successful Australian Paralympic Athlete in the Winter Games winning 6 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze. Always setting himself new challenges, Michael tried his hand at speed skiing and clocked a staggering 213.65km/hr to become the fastest skier with a disability in the world. In May 2017, Michael set himself a new challenge to tackle a distance race - the Ultra-Trail Australia 50km race in the Blue Mountains. It's tough terrain when you're running on crutches but Michael is putting his best foot forward.
