CREN Team members Hannah Enightoola and Ria Eustace recently had the honour of chatting with Rajesh Durbal, a triple-amputee professional triathlete, author, inventor, film producer and former IT engineer who created history in 2010 when he became the world’s first triple amputee to compete and finish in the Iron Man Triathlon Championships in Hawaii, USA. Rajesh was born without fibula bones in both legs and a partially developed right arm. Doctors amputated both legs below the knees and he was fitted with prosthetics at a year and a half. He is the Founder and CEO of Live Free, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to help persons that are lost and suffering become empowered to live their best lives. Rajesh shared his motivations, challenges and successes in competing athletically at a professional level and empowering persons globally.
