Andy Grant

Royal Marine Commando Andy Grant is a man who has gone through a lot in life, and is even now pushing himself to the limit.

In 2009, Grant was on a routine patrol in Afghanistan when an IED detonated, leaving him with 27 injuries that required 15 operations to recover from. Even then, because he knew his shattered right leg would never fully heal properly, he decided to have it amputated.

Now Grant is undergoing another challenge: he is attempting to become the world’s fastest single-leg amputee over a distance of 10km. This one-off documentary looks at his road to recovery and his attempt to break the record.

Paragon is on ITV at 22.40.
