Warren MacDonald – Overcoming The Odds



Sports & Adventure, 2006
Presented By: Warren MacDonald

Adventurer Warren MacDonald was trapped under a boulder causing him to have a double amputation of his legs.  This however did not stop him from cycling, kayaking or climbing mountains. It is by changing our perception of the world that we change the world, he says. If we approach adversity as a constructive challenge, we can learn from it and grow from it. Warren shows us clips of his climbing after the accident and talks about his shifting perspective. “I wouldn’t change what happened if I could”, he says.
