In 2012, midway through a mountain climb, Rannveig fell 15m and broke her back, both ankles, pelvis, and elbow. She almost died and had to use a wheelchair for two months while she learnt to walk again. Now she travels the world looking for mountains that have never been climbed before.
Toyota - Lily Rice DC
Lily’s world was turned upside down when she was 11. At an age when her friends were starting senior school, she had to start using a wheelchair. But where most people would see a steep obstacle in the middle of the way, Lily saw a ramp. Now she is the only European female to do a backflip in a wheelchair.
Toyota - Simona Atzori DC
Simona was born with no arms and rejected prosthetics from an early age. The truth was, there was nothing wrong with her. It was the people trying to make her fit into their idea of what a body should be who were wrong. Today, the successful author, artist and motivational speaker is also a classical ballerina.
