IAmA Stef Reid, Paralympic silver medalist. Blade runner, who was hit by a motor boat at 16 years of age. AMA!
Hello! My name is Stef Reid.
A few weeks ago my brother posted a couple pictures of me and there were requests for an AMA. If you guys still have questions, fire away!
I am an amputee long jumper and sprinter who competes for Great Britain. I just won a silver medal for the long jump in the London 2012 Paralympics!! I became an amputee at 16 years of age, when I was accidentally run over by a motor boat and caught in the propellers. The doctors didn't think I'd survive, but I did :)
Here are a couple different places that have some more pictures of what I do and my different legs.
Here are 2 you tube videos that show myself and my legs in action:
