Fatemah Hosseinpoor's dreams of a career in gymnastics were shattered following a bad fall from a vault at the age of 14.
Due to cultural attitudes towards disability in her home country of Iran, she spent 11 years in a wheelchair struggling to be accepted before deciding to come to the UK to study.
