Janine Shepherd's nickname, 'Janine the Machine' reflected the grit and dedication she brought to the ski slopes and it was these traits that helped her recover when a training accident left her permanently disabled.Despite these setbacks, Janine raised her three children to follow their passions and demonstrated through her own challenging life that nothing is impossible.Now, in a surprising twist, her daughter Annabel is hoping to capture a place in the Australian team to compete in next year's Winter Olympics in the new - and dangerous - sport of slopestyle skiing
