Border Sport in Focus: Episode 9 - Ryan Mania

Jockey Ryan Mania shot to fame when winning the 2013 Grand National horse race on Aurora's Encore. The day after he was badly injured after an accident during a race.

He quit at the age of 24 when he found himself in a dark place. Happily he's back now and enjoying racing as well as a fulfilling family life.

Ryan gave us a frank interview, and we also met up with his wife Annie and trainer Sandy Thomson, who both helped him make a remarkable comeback.
