Motivation du groupe avant le début des épreuves !

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is partnering with its Worldwide Paralympic Partner Samsung to provide 30 leading athletes the chance to record exclusive behind-the-scenes video blogs during the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, where they share their everyday training and struggles.

Born in September 1988, Le Fur took up athletics aged six. She lost her left leg just below the knee after a serious motorcycle accident in 2004. At London 2012 double leg amputee Marlou van Rhijn of the Netherlands took gold (26.18), whilst Le Fur (26.76) smashed the 200m T44 world record for single leg amputees to claim silver. In 2015 she won two gold and two silver medals at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
