Danny Crates’ story is about so much more than just another sportsman achieving his dreams.

Telling how a young, carefree Essex boy comes back from losing his right arm to become a Paralympic gold medallist, the book covers all the highs and lows of Danny’s life.

From the agony of the car crash on the other side of the world that cost him his arm at the age of 21, through a period of introspection as he came to terms with his disability, the achievement of becoming the world’s only one-armed scuba diving instructor, the glory of an athletics career spanning three Paralympic games, and his role as an ambassador for the London 2012 bid.

All told with Danny's amiable sense of humour and indefatigable optimism, the story is one of triumph over adversity and making the most of whatever life throws at you.
