Jamie Andrew completes ?Titanium Man? Challenge

Jamie Andrew, the quadruple amputee after a horrific accident whilst climbing in the Alps, completed his ?Titanium Man? Challenge at 6am on Sunday morning.Jamie, along with fellow amputee Olivia Giles wanted to raise money for their new charity, called 500 miles, which aims to help amputees and other disabled people in deprived areas of the World. Between them the devised the ?Titanium Man? Challenge. Its an Iron Man but thanks to the hi-tec prosthetics Titanium Man seemed more appropriate!This weekend they set off on a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycle and 26.2 mile run to finish back in Edinburgh on Sunday morning. Jamie had this to say, ?The swim was probably the hardest part as the water was cold, choppy and very intimidating at 6 in the morning.  The cycle was not helped by a strong headwind for the first half but I stayed tucked in behind my cycle team and we made good steady progress the whole way.  The run/walk was a long, gruelling effort through a drizzly night on sore stumps, but by now the end was in sight and nothing was going to stop me!?
