09 Feb Motivational stories. Scotty Cranmer.
All sports have their icons. People whom, besides being great sportsmen, outshine for other reasons and become part of the sport’s history. Because of his charisma, genius, imagination and many other things that are well beyond being the person with more BMX medals of the Xgames (along with Dave Mirra), Scotty Cranmer is one of those icons.
On October 12, 2016, Scotty suffered a very serious BMX accident with the result of several facial fractures, cerebral hemorrhage and damage to his C4 and C5 vertebrae.
The whole extreme sports community is creating a movement to help Scotty fund his rehabilitation and cover the costly medical expenses not covered by his sports insurance.
I know he has a long and tough road ahead but also that the attitude he shows in this video evidences that he is facing the problem the right way. The only way to proof that impossible is nothing, only fear and ignorance.
Do not miss this video where Scotty explains his accident and how he is preparing to face the challenge of getting back on a bike.
I have no doubt. He will be back.
