How I took up Boccia
Was introduced by my brother after he went to the Europeans back in 2005 and needed a partner for the pairs.

What I enjoy about Boccia
I enjoy the competitiveness of the game. From the outside it looks simple but it's like a game of chess, every opponent has their achilles heel. Also meeting people from different cultures and learning a lot about myself.

Ambitions in Boccia
Medal at London 2012.

Role Models in Boccia
I like Bruno Valentim (of Portugal) he has this arrogrance and is clinical in his execution of play but off court he is a good guy. He has now retired and is trying his hand at shooting!

Interests outside Boccia
I like reading, writing, going to the theatre and pictures and travel.
