THE PUSH

This award-winning documentary chronicles Grant Korgan’s paralysing snowmobile accident and his journey to become the first spinal cord injured athlete to push himself to the South Pole.

Just five months after marrying the love of his life, while attempting a snowmobile jump, Grant crashed, breaking his back. During rehab, Grant was offered an opportunity to join a South Pole expedition. In Antarctica they struggled with minus 50 degree conditions, failing solar panels, hypothermia, and mental challenges.

On 17th of January 2012 Grant became the 1st spinal cord injured athlete to reach the bottom of the world. When Grant returned home, the thrill of his achievement turned to reflection about his reality, life with paralysis. But Grant made a profound, inspiring decision, to choose positivity. He focuses on what he is able to do and finds challenge and comfort in kayaking, downhill skiing, diving, and water-skiing as an adaptive athlete.
