Super Scotsman in speedy recovery

A 25-year-old man from Scotland who suffered serious motorbike crash injuries in a road traffic accident last year has stunned doctors by completing both the Edinburgh marathon and a 33-mile cross-country run.

In fact, so impressive has the man's recovery from his motorbike crash injuries been that he has been nominated as an Olympic torchbearer by the NHS hospital which treated him.

Doctors and physiotherapists expected that after spending five weeks in intensive care with broken bones, punctured lungs and nerve damage, the 25-year-old would take years to make a full recovery from his motorcycle accident injuries.

However, less than a year after the collision, and despite having lost the use of his right arm, the inspirational Scotsman was out running competitively in gruelling distance events.

The man's physiotherapist expressed astonishment at his recovery from the motorbike crash injuries, saying, "In October, he could only stand for 10 seconds or less within the parallel bars in our gym with the physiotherapist. Two weeks ago he ran 33 miles cross-country across the Cairngorms. Now that's taken a lot of commitment."
