Nick Watts competes in the final event on the alpine skiing program, the slalom, at the Torino winter Paralympics. Although Watts was a single leg skier, he competed with a prosthesis on his left leg after lots of experimentation, because the lower leg kept ‘getting in the way’ when he skied on a single leg. Conditions were tough for the slalom, making it difficult to differentiate between snow and sky.
