SPORTS

Throughout my life I have been involved in many kinds of sports ranging from rollerblading in a half pipe to windsurfing on the Gold Coast. When I had my accident in 1996, things changed a bit but it didn't really slow me down. I took up basketball, water skiing and tennis. I found that I could still do many of the sports I wanted to do. My water skiing has been going well and in 2007 I won my first Gold medal at the World Championships in Townsville for the Trick event and backed it up in 2009 in Vichy, France.

MP1: Athletes unable to utilise the majority of their trunk musculature and rise from their knees without arm support. They lack full use of their upper extremities. Typically, they do not have adequate grip strength and may utilise their forearms or wrists to hold the handle.

MP2: Athletes able to use their upper trunk muscles and raise their body partially from their knees in the skiing position. Typically, they have full use of their upper extremities.

MP3: Athletes with good use of the majority of their trunk muscles, possibly including abdominal's. Typically, they are able to raise the trunk from their knees in the skiing position and have full use of their upper extremities.

BASKETBALL

I started playing wheelchair basketball back in 1997. 2005 was my first year playing in the National League. I am classified as a one point player. Each player is given a point rating depending on their functional ability, (for example a lower leg amputee is most likely to be classified as 4.5 points). The team of 5 players has to equal 14 points maximum.
