CBC Radio doc profiles Newfoundland veteran and winner of British TV dance competition
Cassidy Little always wanted to be a dancer. Last week, the Newfoundlander got his wish when he won the British television dancing competition, The People's Strictly -- and he did it on one leg.
Little is a veteran of the British Royal Marines and lost his right leg below the knee in Afghanistan in 2011. He spoke to As It Happens host Carol Off about his dancing victory on tonight’s program.
If you'd like to hear more about Cassidy’s remarkable story, here’s a link to The Two Worlds of Cassidy L, a radio documentary about him produced for The Sunday Edition last year.
