In April 2012 Jackie an endurance race athelete was involved in a near fatal car accident which left her in hospital for weeks with brain trauma, a broken back and shattered knee. She was told she may never walk the same again let alone race. Determined not to give up she competed in her first mini triathlon 6 months later and won. Fast forward to Feb 2013 and she's training to do an Iron Man later this year. Talk about an inspiration!
