About: Natalie du Toit. Tumble Turn

Natalie du Toit: Tumble Turn is an inspirational story of the courage and humour required to triumph over adversity. Sometimes in life you come up against a wall. You can stop at the wall, but then nothing more will happen. You can try to turn at the wall, but if you come out of that spin without purpose, you 11 be disoriented and may lose your way. Or you can choose to tumble turn at the wall, picking a new direction and using the impetus the wall provides to propel you forward in your life. When her leg was amputated following an horrific scooter accident in 2001, South African swimming sensation Natalie du Toit literally dived right back into swimming. In 2002 Natalie swam the able-bodied 800m freestyle final at the Commonwealth Games, making history and becoming a South African icon. Swimming in both able-bodied and disabled events, Natalie du Toit has continued to win hearts and medals and broke another two records at the 2006 Paralympic World Cup in Manchester. Refusing to give up on her dream, Natalie was then in training for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Tumble Turn is is a beautiful story of courage, the stuff powerful biographies are made of.
