Watch: 'I lost my arm and leg, but I kept my head'

Kidnapped, blown up... but he won't let anything dampen his spirit

After quitting the British army, Chris Moon's life reads like a film script.

Captured by the brutal Khmer Rouge in Cambodia before being freed, Mr Moon lost his right arm and a leg after he was blown up clearing landmines in Mozambique in 1995.

Refusing to have his spirit killed, within a year he plucked up incredible strength and courage to run the Marathon Des Sables, known as one of the toughest marathons in the world. He was the first amputee to do so.

Mr Moon was in Malta last Friday to present a motivational talk organised by Business Leaders Malta.

Interviewed by Times of Malta's online editor Herman Grech, Mr Moon gives his tips to overcome life's biggest challenges.
