Stephanie Read – Paralympian

Stephanie Reid, ParalympianAs part of the new Models of Diversity documentary due to air mid July this year, we interviewed Stephanie Read, Paralympian who won a silver medal at the London 2012 Paralympics. In her interview she not only gave us the story of her life before, during and after her accident, but a deep insight into how she overcame adversity to take her to where she is now. We met her at Loughborough University’s high-tech training facility, on a superb indoor track where Stephanie likes to train. She showed us her warm-up routine and were shown some of the different leg types that she uses for running. Adam Finch, the documentary maker filmed the various stages of her routine and her interview, which I have to say was astounding. I was lucky to get 30 minutes at the end to take some stills in the gorgeous light. Even if I hadn’t, I would have come away a very lucky and humble man to be in the presence of such a strong woman.
