Amiee Mullins on TED

Saturday 20th February, 2010

Amiee Mullins - sportswoman and model and double amputee - on the cover of ID magazine

A link to a great new TED video was posted up at Sync Tank this week by Gary Thomas - have a look and see what you think...

The thesaurus might equate "disabled" with synonyms like "useless" and "mutilated," but ground-breaking runner Aimee Mullins is out to redefine the word. Defying these associations, she hows how adversity -- in her case, being born without shinbones -- actually opens the door for human potential.
