Former Paralympian and Chef de Mission for the United States 2012 Paralympic team Aimee Mullins has never let disability control her. A double amputee at only one-year-old, Mullins was the first person in the world to compete wearing cheetah legs. She went on to set world records at the Atlanta Paralympics in 1996, walked in London Fashion Week for Alexander McQueen, starred in an award winning film by Matthew Barney and won a coveted contract as a covergirl for L'Oreal in 2011 alongside Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez. Simply put, she exemplifies ambition and has continuously proved that people cannot, and should not, be defined by disability. Here Mullins tells Crane.tv why the London 2012 Paralympic Games is the greatest show on earth. www.aimeemullins.com/
