In his teens he impressed in rugby union, playing alongside future Wallabies Kurtley BEALE and Peter BETHAM, but a series of concussions put an end to his rugby-playing days. "When I hit something, my brain moves around way too much." (, 13 Sep 2016)


Midway through 2015, he succumbed to stress fractures in his back, ending his World Championships bid and throwing his Paralympic defence into disarray. (, 13 Sep 2016)

Reason: Took up athletics at school, where he also participated in able-bodied rowing and rugby union. Recruited to Paralympic sport in 2005, after being spotted by talent scout and Paralympian Amy WINTERS (AUS). (, May 2016)
Ambition: In 2015, he held the T38 100m world record at 10.79sec, but at the Rio 2016 Paralympics it was lowered to 10.74 (Chinese athlete Hu JIANWEN). “Winning gold medals is great and something I need to do, but now I want to bring the world record down as far as possible. I want to set a time that no one will be able to go past, so my name will always be part of Paralympic history.? (, 5 Feb 2015)
Memorable: Racing the 100m in 10.79 seconds to win gold at the London 2012 Paralympics. (, May 2016)
