Tom Simeon #108

NZ Paralympian Thomas Simeon

Tom was the first New Zealand representative to compete in Boccia, alongside Paralympian Henk Dijkstra at the Paralympic Games. He competed at the Atlanta 1996 Paralympic Games in individual and pairs Boccia events. He was part of a team of 34 Kiwi Paralympians who collectively won 19 medals.

Tom has not lost his taste for competition as he takes part in Geneva’s annual Colour Cruise, a fun race for hundreds of people with disability.

In July 2020, PNZ Chief Executive Fiona Allan was invited to Tom’s home and presented him with his unique numbered pin as part of The Celebration Project.
