Showing excellence and precision in wheelchair basketball, 21-year-old Tom, has been a champion in the 2014
and 2015 Kevin Coombes Cup in the junior nationals. Having previously competed in discus, shotput and javelin, Tom has found his calling in the wheelchair sport after being encouraged by a Sporting Wheelies representative to try it out.
Whilst being a shining wheelchair basketball star, Tom is busy currently completing his final year of university in an accounting degree.
Tom, who was born with spina bifida and endured a leg injury at the age of nine resulting in permanent wheelchair use, lives his life by a quote from Aristotle; “we are what we repeatedly do, excellence therefore is not an act but a habit”.
