3. No Mean Feat: The Mark Inglis Story

"Recommended. A documentary of the impressive life of New Zealand mountaineer Mark Inglis, who overcame the loss of both his legs below the knee to frostbite, became a research scientist in leukemia research, a winemaker, and an athlete with a disability ready to summit the peak that cost him his legs. The best parts of the program are the mountain climbing scenes as the camera follows Inglis up Mount Cook in his return. It is recommended for all mountain climbing enthusiasts, as well as public libraries and universities holding collections in human interest stories, mountaineering, athletics, sports medicine, and outdoor studies." -EMRO Review
Some people never quit. Take Mark Inglis for example. Mark is a double amputee. He lost his legs through frostbite after being trapped for two weeks near the summit of New Zealand's highest mountain, Mount Cook, in 1982. Twenty years later he returned to the mountain that robbed him of his legs, to finish the climb begun two decades before. This classic documentary traces Mark's story from the time of his rescue, his hospitalization and double amputation. It follows his progress, and no-quit attitude, as he becomes a medical scientist working in the area of leukemia research, then one of New Zealand's leading winemakers, plus a Paralympic silver medal cyclist. Lastly, the cameras are alongside to record his determination and courage as he realizes his dream to once again stand on the top of New Zealand's highest peak. Produced by Chas Toogood. 04/11DE JSCA 52 min.
