A 20-year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, Jody Mitic served as a master corporal and sniper team leader on three active tours of duty over the course of seven years. One day in 2007, while on a mission in a small Afghan village, he stepped on a landmine and lost both of his legs below the knees. Within three years he was not only walking again — he was running. By 2013, Mitic was starring in the blockbuster reality TV show The Amazing Race Canada. In 2014 he reinvented himself again, winning a seat as a city councillor for Ottawa. Mitic tells his story in the 2015 memoir Unflinching: The Making of a Canadian Sniper.
