Paralympian Profile

Garth Reynolds #133

Garth Reynolds, , New Zealand Paralympian

Garth is a man of many talents and passions, including horses and the water. His love of horses led him to being the whip for the Northland Hunt Inc. But it was Garth’s love for the water and anything to do with it that took him to the top. Thanks to the New Zealand Blind Foundation sailing programme he got the opportunity to sail and loved it! Garth competed at 3 Blind Sailing World Championships winning gold medals on his second and third attempts in 1999 and 2002. It was the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games that were a career highlight competing at the highest level in Para sailing. Garth describes the Paralympic Games as an unforgettable experience that made all the hours of training worthwhile.

Garth officially received his ‘numbered’ Paralympic pin as part of The Celebration Project in Whangarei in May 2019.
