Norman Brown #1
Norman immigrated from England with his mother. He made his Paralympic debut at the Tel Aviv 1968 Paralympic Games, as a member of New Zealand’s first ever Paralympic team. Norman was a talented Paralympian competing in a variety of Para sports including Para archery, Para swimming and Para table tennis. In Israel, Norman finished 6th in his heat of the 25m breaststroke. In Para table tennis, he lost his first round 0-2 in the singles against the English team with his partner Philip Read.
It is early Paralympians such as Norman that have paved the way for future Paralympians to succeed today and in the future. Norman has now passed away.
His mother lived in Hillsborough in Auckland and she passed away before Norman. To date, we have no information about Norman’s family.
