Setting his sights on Paralympics

Darren Grundy has a dream of making it to the Paralympics and after taking out the gold medal at Lismore PCYC Judo Tournament last Sunday, his coach Cam Dunstan believes he is well on the way.

Darren won all four of his matches with a combination of fitness and technical excellence and was presented with his trophy from Lismore MP Thomas George.

Tweed PCYC Judo coach Cam Dunstan said Darren`s judo was rapidly approaching the standard that could very well get him to the Paralympics and was a testament to his dedication to the sport for more than six years.

“Darren trains diligently twice a week and spends a further three hours per week on fitness with the PCYC Boxing Club coach, as well as helping out with the PCYC Special Needs Judo Program,” he said. “Darren is the perfect role model for youngsters who can be inspired to believe they can achieve absolutely anything they set their mind to.”
