I attended Percy Hedley School
up until the age of 9 when I went into mainstream education at
Southlands Middle School in Cramlington. I went on to complete
GCSE's and A-levels at Blyth Ridley High School before gaining
a 2-1 honours degree in Business Information Systems from Northumbria
I am a professional athlete, competing in field athletics primarily the F32 Club Throw, which is equivalent to the Javelin for my disability. I have competed in Discus and Shot Putt in the past. I have represented Great Britain for over 25 years, competing in 6 Paralympic Games, 7 World Championships and 6 European Championships - so far winning 34 international medals.
In 1996 I became Britain's youngest ever track & field Olympic and Paralympic gold medallist at the Atlanta Paralympics. I went on to be undefeated in all competitions until 2005 - 9 years in total. I won gold at both Sydney and Athens Paralympics, then agonisingly missed out on a gold at the Beijing Paralympics, coming away with silver. At the London 2012 Paralympics I was male athletics team captain but underperformed due to a serious hip injury and finished 11th. I got a new hip and won bronze 2016 Rio Paralympics.
I have worked as a website developer. I write and do motivational speaking. I'm secretary of NUDSA - Newcastle United Disabled Supporters Association.
I am a founder of the charity SMILE Through Sport - that's aims are to inspire, educate and promote enjoyment of disability sport.
