I had scoliosis surgery in 2010 and blog about my experiences living with scoliosis. My aim is to raise awareness of scoliosis and help and inspire others with the condition.
I read the other day that Usain Bolt, the “fastest man in the world” has scoliosis.
I’m not sure how bad his scoliosis is but I myself found it very inspiring that the fastest man in the world has the same condition as me as he has obviously not let his back stop him from achieving his dreams.
I found an interview with Bolt here where he discusses the importance of keeping his core and back strong, something I have been working on alot myself recently.
I don’t think I’ll be sprinting anytime soon but it just goes to show that anything is possible and makes me more determined than ever to train hard at the gym and achieve everything I want to, despite my scoliosis.
