Getting a pushScott sustained a L1-L2 incomplete spinal injury while snowboarding in Canada 12 years ago.  He works full-time, is married to Clair and has two children, Oliver and Madeline.

Since his injury Scott has made the most of his abilities and has captained the Adelaide Thunder Wheelchair basketball team in the National Wheelchair Basketball League (NWBL). Scott has been a member of the National Australian Men’s Wheelchair Basketball team ‘The Rollers’ since 2006 and lived and played basketball professionally in Italy in 2010.  Also over the years he’s completed numerous half marathons and doesn’t mind playing wheelchair tennis socially.

A new opportunity has presented itself, with Para-Triathlon being included in the 2016 Paralympic games and Scott feels this is a sport he can be very competitive in.

He is a member of the Melzer Multisport Racing team, Adelaide Triathlon Club and Triathlon Australia.
