About the project

I commenced learning to ski and drive bobsled a year to the week after my legs were amputated. 


In 2012 I had the good fortune to attend FIBT para driving schools Park City, Utah and IGls, Austria. 2013 I drove again Park City and Calgary. During those years I was also introduce to seated adaptive alpine ski racing. January 2017 saw my return to parabob, competing in World Cups in Lillehammer, Norway and Oberhof, Germany. Then in February in the World Championships at St.Moritz in Switzerland. 


My best results to date are 12th place at the Oberhof World Cup in January 2017 and 14th place at the World Championships at St.Moritz in February 2017. I was Graced to achieve these results with very little training and after a long break from the sport. I look forward to being able to train more often and be more prepared for the next racing season.


I am currently ranked 17th in the world, with plans to improve on that ranking, which I believe is very achievable should I have to opportunity to compete in all the seasons races.


Parabob now has provisional acceptance into the 2022 Paralympic winter game, God willing, should be announced as included to the winter Paralympics by the end of next season. 

I have had the good fortune to be the Australian pioneer for both para bob and para skeleton. Thankfully, during my absence from the sport (2014-2016) other adaptive Australians have become involved. 


I am hoping to achieve a medal at the 2022 Paralympic Games. Between then and now, I'll need to base myself near bobsled tracks to train. I will also need to compete in the parabob World Cup circuit over the next four years.


Para alpine ski racing has been wonderful also. Last March I returned to racing after nearly two away from Alpine racing recovering from surgeries. I skied into a sixth and three seventh place finishes. I was pleased with my efforts considering only a short preparation.
