Paralympian gold medalist Andrew (Andy) Lewis sustained a knee amputation (right leg) after been involved in a motorbike accident when he was 16. At the time he was applying to be part of the Army Parachute Regiment and was an excellent cross country runner for Gloucestershire. He spent months in hospital, and his leg was initially saved, but he later had it amputated when he was 22 due to a number of complications.
