Mark Inglis is a man who lives life 'to the max'. When he was 23 he was trapped in an ice cave near the summit of Mt Cook with fellow climber, Phil Doole for 13 days. Despite both legs needing to be amputated below the knee Mark Inglis has set himself many goals and succeeded. His targets have been both academic/professional and physical, and he has succeeded in all areas. He won a silver medal cycling at the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games, has won skiing medals, become a research scientist and made medal-winning wines. In 2002, to his great joy, he stepped onto the summit of Mt Cook again. This is an inspiring story of remarkable courage and determination.
