Brian has represented New Zealand in both Para athletics and Para powerlifting at the Arnhem 1980 and Barcelona 1992 Paralympic Games. This was the ultimate for Brian to become a Paralympian for your country.
Outside of the Paralympic Games his achievements are extensive including setting a world record for the fastest time by an amputee at the New York City Marathon in 1985, then beating his own record the following year. At 61, Brian is still winning titles and challenging his body to go beyond its limits. Now competing at Masters level in power lifting, he also holds many able-bodied New Zealand records.
Brian officially received his ‘numbered’ Paralympic pin as part of The Celebration Project in Whangarei in May 2019.
