Paralympian #129 Bill Oughton passed away on 31 December 2022, aged 60. Bill was a Wheelchair rugby player and played for New Zealand’s national team, the Wheel Blacks.

Bill competed with the Wheel Blacks in two Paralympic Games, winning a medal in each. First he won a bronze medal in the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games before being part of the gold medal winning team at Athens 2004.

Our thoughts are with Bill’s wife and sons, as well as the Wheelchair rugby community.
