At the age of nineteen Sandy Blythe's future seemed assured - he had a promising career as an Australian Rules footballer ahead of him, and was studying for a university degree. But driving back to university after the Summer holidays, his future irrevocably changed when a car accident left him a paraplegic.
'Blythe Spirit' is the story of Sandy's journey from the depths of despair in his hospital bed to the elation of co-captaining the Australian men's wheelchair basketball team, which won the gold medal at the Atlanta Paralympics and aims to do the same in Sydney this year.
The story of a man who has fought against all odds to achieve his dreams, 'Blythe Spirit' is filled with joy, sadness and humour, and, above all, inspiration.
