Denise Schindler

Paracycling athlete

At the age of two, Denise Schindler loses her lower right leg in an accident. At 18, she discovered cycling and pedaled her way to the top of the world as a para-cyclist. A touching life story of a top athlete that shows what is possible. Thanks to a strong team, wonderful parents, outstanding doctors, perfect medical technicians and her incredible willpower, Denise is able to stand on her “two” legs again. With courage, fighting spirit, perseverance and a lot of motivation, she has managed to overcome resistance and live with her handicap. Her success proves her right: 3 x World Champion and 4 x Paralympic Medals!

Denise has recorded her impressive life story in her book: “On the luck of having bad luck. How to grow from a stroke of fate! My 10 principles for resilience: acceptance, security, self-efficacy, self-confidence, passion, optimism, goals, failure as an opportunity, empathy, love and appreciation.”
