Paraclimber Anoushé Husain has just been named sports personality of the year at the Asian Achievers Awards. She tells Emma Bartholomew how it gives her a focus away from her health.
Anoushé Husain is a role model for anyone facing a self-limiting belief or barrier.
A cancer survivor living with five diagnosed syndromes, who was born missing her right arm below the elbow, she is ranked third in the UK for paraclimbing – despite only taking up the sport two years ago.
Her climbing progress has been so swift that a place on the GB paraclimbing team is looking like a real possibility.
