Floris Meijer (1989) has been crazy about sports from a very early age. He went on to study the Leaders in Sport programme at the prestigious Dutch CIOS Institute in Arnhem. For years, he was a skiing instructor in Austria and took part in many international skiing championships, winning numerous prizes.
Until a freestyle skiing accident in 2012. A disastrous landing from a ski jump led to Floris suffering a major spinal cord injury, which left him a paraplegic.
