LUKE SINNOTT – DOUBLE LEG AMPUTATION
Luke Sinnott served as a captain of the explosives cleanup service in the province of Helmand, Afghanistan. During a mission he walked on a berm bomb that severed both his legs. “It felt like all life was flowing out of my body”, he said. “I thought about home and didn’t want to die like this.” He lost both legs.
This year, Luke is one of the British athletes who participate in the World ParaAthletics Championships London 2017. He can easily ride the BerkelBike with his walking prosthetics. Luke got to know the BerkelBike on a trade fair, he was one of the first Berkel Bikers with an aluminum frame in England. Years later, he is still very excited about this solution to his mobility problem.
