In the early 1990s, Richard Štěpánek (54) successfully entered the Brno dance scene. He was a choreographer, dance teacher and a sought-after aerobics teacher. Then came the turning point. After a serious car accident, which he did not cause, he fought for his life and escaped death only by a fous. When he awoke from his artificial sleep after twenty-one days, he learned that the doctors had to amputate his arm. Despite his handicap, he became a respected racer and his story inspires others today.
