Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.
