60 Minutes Special – Long Road Ahead

Sam Willoughby Special

The founder of the International Olympic Committee, Pierre de Coubertin, liked to recite the Latin term “Citius, Altius, Fortius”. It translates as “Faster, Higher, Stronger”. However, the pursuit of sporting supremacy comes with risks, as Australian silver medallist Sam Willoughby, 25, has tragically discovered. This elite BMX rider is a two-time world champion and a sponsor’s delight. But four weeks ago he crashed while training in the USA, and in a terrible instant lost all feeling below his chest. Now he faces his greatest uphill battle: not to cycle again, simply to walk. Sam is determined to win this fight and with the support of his wonderful family, including fiancée Alise Post, he is already proving what a great champion he really is.
