Description

In 1997, Andy Barrow was playing rugby for his local club when he suffered a spinal-cord injury that left him paralysed from the chest down, with limited use of his hands. He was aged just 17.

Following this life-changing injury and many hard months of rehabilitation, his life was transformed when he discovered wheelchair rugby – also known as “Murderball”.  Andy’s wheelchair rugby career encompassed three Paralympic Games, three World Championships, and five European Championships. He captained Great Britain from 2005 to 2010, and led the team out at the Beijing Paralympics before bowing out on home turf at London 2012.

Andy is incredibly inspirational and it was so powerful to hear him say that despite all the setbacks he's faced in life, he wouldn't change a thing. This is a moving story of resilience, self-belief, and the ability to overcome.
