Alessandro Zanardi: A Tribute to the Human Spirit

Injured in a terrible accident on the Lausitzring in 2001, Alessandro Zanardi lost his legs and was told he would never race again.  Yet he came back and competed with specially-equipped cars in touring car class racing between 2003 and 2009.  Then he became a medal-winning handcyclist and took two golds and a silver at the 2012 London Paralympics after winning the handcycle class at the New York Marathon in 2011.  In 2014 he raced a BMW Z4 GT3 in touring car racing again.  Some people just don't give up!
