David competed at the Seoul 1988 Paralympic Games, along with 16 other New Zealand Paralympians who collectively won 17 medals. David competed in Para athletics and won the bronze medal in the Men’s Marathon B2, visually impaired class.

Humble and resilient, David’s son says “Growing up with a blind dad had its challenges. I guess I am a personal taxi some of the time, but Dad has been blind for 40 years. He has never complained about his condition.“

Today, David is a PE teacher and lives in Timaru.
