Mills lost her left leg after a collision with a police motorcycle in Kensington, London in 1993. Her left leg was amputated below the knee and she has been using a prosthesis ever since.

Mills then began his competitive skiing career in 2010 at the age of 42, two years after his divorce from legendary Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.

In her attempt, Mills went from a standing start to over 60 mph in less than three seconds.

“I just hope this inspires a little bit those who have had injuries similar to mine and that they can use this as inspiration to go on and achieve their own dreams and goals, whatever they may be. be.’

Amputee Mills uses a prosthetic leg specially designed to withstand stress on the ski slope, which she created in team with the London Prosthetic Centre.

Descending a mountain slope with a 48-degree slope at such a frantic pace, it was crucial that Mills had a prosthesis to deal with the pressure.

London Prosthetic Center head Abdo Haidar, who worked with Mills to build the sturdy prosthesis, praised Mills. “I’ve been a prosthetist for many years and have made limbs for cycling and horse riding to Paralympic racing challenges, but nothing compares to skiing. It is the hardest sport for an amputee.

Mills said: “I’m so happy, ecstatic is an understatement!!! I love challenging people’s perception of disability and inspiring those who doubt their abilities, disabled or not, to get off the couch. and do something that will give them the willpower to experience the roller coaster of a lifetime.

“We must not let life die out before it is over, we only have a finite number of seconds, live them.”
