I’m an Australian Paralympic Wheelchair Athlete, attending my third Paralympics in London in 2012. I compete in the wheelchair racing classification of T53 and in London will race in four events, T53 200, 400, 800 and T53-54 4x400m relay. 

In London, I aim to build on my past Paralympic Games success, which includes a gold and silver medal at the 2004 Athens Paralympics (gold in the men’s 800m T53 – for which I received a Medal of the Order of Australia – and silver in the men's 4 x 100 metre relay). I also competed at the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing, winning a silver medal in the men's 200 metres T53 event and a bronze medal in the men's 400 metres T53 event.
