Grant Edwards The Strong Man, was once an elite athlete, Olympics qualifier and Australia’s strongest man. A highly sought after and disciplined security adviser for governments around the world such as East Timor, Afghanistan and the Americas, Edwards was considered the last person to ‘crack’, but a narrow escape from a deadly attack in Kabul pushed him to breaking point. This is the story of an extraordinary man and his extraordinary battle back from the brink. Commander Edwards will be in conversation with ABC Radio’s Health Report host, Dr Norman Swan.
