Truely Inspiring Sporting Story
Jason McCartney

This man was badly injured in the Bali terrorist attack in October last year.
Suffered burns to 50% of his body. Was in intensive care and a coma for a few weeks.

Tonight (Australian time), just under 8 months later, he resumed his career as a professional footballer -- wearing the numbers '88' and '202' on his jumper to represent the number of Australians and total people killed in the horrific attack.

He has to wear a pressure suit over his burns yet he has earned his place in the team on merit.

Life triumphs over death.
