This athlete will make you rethink your workout excuses

She knows how to say no to Netflix.

Wheelchair basketballer, Clare Nott has a level of determination that’s hard to find. Starting basketball in 2004, she was on the national squad by the following year. She was named ‘Best New Talent’ in the Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball League in 2005 and has been ‘Most Valuable Player’ five times. She was also selected in the national team for the Paralympics, winning a Bronze medal in Beijing and Silver in London.
Losing her ability to walk at a young age, Nott admits you need a lot of self-motivation to get through adversity.
