- Sporting Highlights:
Coming off the back of a lumbar stress fracture and some enormous life changes including becoming a father for the first and second time, getting married and starting a business, I was more than thrilled to medal at Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. The medal was my first time on the international podium representing 10 years of dedication to improvement since my debut at the International Paralympic Committee Athletics World Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand 2011
The moment I received the Bronze medal at Tokyo was the best feeling. This is everyone’s medal. I could not have done it without my support crew and coaches. In a way this is the most memorable moment but there have been so many other great moments.
So when someone asks “What is the most memorable sporting moment?” My answer is that there are so many little ones over the weeks and years. Each moment is just as important as the ones that go on the TV or in the record books.
So here is a big thank you to the staff at VIS and my loved ones for their support: past, present and ongoing.
