Lily Rice is the first European female athlete to land a backflip in a wheelchair and second in the world! 

Born with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP), she has found that the friendliness of a skatepark has changed her life. 

Since her disease is progressive, she taught herself over the years how to deal as her legs became weaker ultimately resulting in her needing a wheelchair. 

She opens up about bullying and how she and her parents coped with the disability.

She is a true inspiration and has won numerous awards, most recently achieving World Champion status in Germany.
