There were tears streaming down my face, but I drove myself on, screaming, 'Who are you? Who are you?' And each time the answer that kept bouncing around in my mind was just- 'I am someone who will never stop. Someone who will never give up. Ever.'

When Kurt Fearnley was a kid, he would leave his wheelchair at the front gate and go exploring with his brothers and sisters. 'You're going to have to be stronger than we are,' they told him, 'and we know you will be.'

The boy from Carcoar was raised to believe he could do anything. At fifteen, he won his first medal. Then he conquered the world, winning three Paralympic gold medals, seven world championships and more than 35 marathons. A world-beater in and out of his wheelchair, Kurt is a true Australian champion.

Inspiring, exhilarating and highly entertaining, Pushing the Limits takes us inside the mind of a kid with a disability growing up in a tiny town, a teenager finding his place in the world, and an elite sportsman who refuses to give up, no matter how extreme the challenge.
