In 2013 South African ultra-endurance cyclist Grant Lottering's heart stopped after an accident in the Italian Alps. Although told by doctors that he would never cycle again, he has since undertaken many gruelling rides, and was the first South African to complete a solo, non-stop 420km ultra-endurance ride through the French Alps in under 24 hours.
"His ability to overcome adversity and pain, even in the face of death, is what makes Grant truly unique." Edwin Moses, Olympic Gold medallist
