Where have the last 4 years gone ?

It’s quite astonishing to think this time 4 years ago, I would have be competing at my 2 Paralympics in London.

It’s quite astonishing to think that this time 4 years ago, I was competing at my second Paralympics in London. It was an honour and a privilege to have been able to compete at a home Games, something many athletes never get to accomplish during their careers.

It’s surreal and a bit nostalgic reading some of the old press releases.

 

The University of Chester, where I studied for my Postgraduate degree in Sociology of Sport and Exercise. I was also having to balance the master’s degree course with my training in the lead up to London 2012 back in Roehampton, London where GB sitting volleyball was based.

 

I was fortunate to be quite busy after the games, promoting Paralympic sport and talking about my experiences to school children in North Wales. I was even lucky enough to do a talk at a college in London, thanks to Peter Capper a friend from the rowing men’s squad from my days at Swansea University. Not only that but in 2014 I was invited to talk on the Awaken Your Alpha Podcast by the host and former Para Volley as the sport now likes to be called; teammate Adam Lewis-Walker.

 

To tell you the truth it was quite an emotional ride watching the Rio Olympics, but as the opening ceremony draws ever nearer I’m sensing it might be tough for me to watch as this will be the first time I will not be at the Paralympics proper since I was not selected for Athens in 2004.
