If you thought a huge payout from Sir Paul McCartney would mean weâ€™d finally see the back of Heather Mills youâ€™re sadly mistaken, as sheâ€™s announced new plans toÂ try out for Britain’s Paralympic skiing team.
Whilst Iâ€™m still mopping up the mouthful of coffee I spat all over my monitor when I heard this, it looks as though she could actually be serious as sheâ€™s been training hard to enter the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games in Russia as a downhill skier.
The former glamour model, who lost a leg in a motorcycle accident in 1993, proved her athleticism by taking part in U.K. figure skating TV series Dancing On Ice and now she reckons a bit of dancing and some sequins qualifies her to enter into the Olympics.
Personally Iâ€™ve never heard anything as bonkers (expect maybe Katie Priceâ€™s plans for a â€™classyâ€™ wedding) but she sounds pretty determined to win gold in the tournament for athletes with physical disabilities after announcing; “I’ve been skiing for many years and I’m much better at that than ice skating, so I’m training hard to try to get on the British Paralympic downhill team.
“If I manage to compete, it would be phenomenal – very inspiring for all the kids that I counsel. They didn’t believe they could do anything and they are now trying ice skating and rollerblading and biking and swimming, which is wonderful… Having loved sport my whole life, competing in a Paralympics would be a dream come true.”
Yeah, good luck with that one.
