To say that Duncan began to ‘live life a little bit better’ is today an understatement. As early as 2011, he not only abandoned his wheelchair but was already participating in challenges and expeditions that would put him on the map as a record-breaking trailblazer.
Fast forward to 2013, Duncan became the first-ever double amputee to race to the South Pole with Walking with the Wounded’s 2013 expedition team and becoming the first double amputee to complete the world’s toughest foot race – the Marathon Des Sables in 2017.
For Duncan, having a disability and being an amputee is a badge of honour he proudly wears. It means belonging to an elite group of people who have the capacity to endure the harshest of circumstances, the toughest of physical challenges, and the most testing of mental hardships – and overcoming them all thanks to a champion mindset. It also means never looking back on what could have been.
