Steve Thomas grew up in a Welsh mining village in the Ogmore Valley. At the age of 18 with a semi-pro rugby career beckoning, meningitis struck, resulting in the double amputation below the knees.
However, a life long ambition to become a professional athlete has driven Steve to achieve 3 World Championship titles and he has represented Great Britain in both Summer and Winter Paralympics. Steve first represented Great Britain in Para Nordic skiing in his first World Cup in December 2018.
Steve wants to share his experience of his journey and show that there are no barriers if you are willing to commit to your dreams.
