II was exposed to sports for people with disabilities at Hope School. I was chosen to represent Southern Transvaal (now Central Gauteng) at the National Championships for the Physically Disabled from 1989 – 1997. I retired from competitive sports in 1997 after the National Championships, to pursue my studies.

I initially competed in Wheelchair Racing, Swimming, Field Events and Wheelchair Basketball. I later specialised in Swimming, Wheelchair Basketball and short distance Wheelchair Racing.

I won 39 Gold, 16 Silver and 5 Bronze medals in the time I did competitive sports. I also broke numerous records.

In 1995 I was invited to participate in the All African Invitational Games where I won Bronze for 800m Wheelchair Racing.

In 1996 I was chosen to represent South Africa at the World Wheelchair Games in Stoke Mandeville, U.K. where I won a Bronze Medal for 100m Breaststroke.

Awards that I have won for sport include:

Best Wheelchair Athlete 1997
Sportsman of The Year 1996
Victor Ludorum of the National Championships 1996
Most Valuable Player (MVP) for Basketball 1996
Success.

Success is achieving, right? So how many of you have set goals?
Luck is being at the right place at the right time.
Success is being the right person all of the time.
