Dave says: “There are no limits. Yeah, you might have a disability and it might stop you doing something in a certain way but loads of people have found a way to carry on, to get into sport and be amazing at sport. So, just because you’ve got one leg, one arm or no vision, don’t let that stop you.”
A snapped chain cruelly robbed the Loughborough-based triathletes of a shot at glory in the Paralympic Games in Tokyo in 2021, but after bouncing back and underlining their class with the world and European crowns, they went on to win Commonwealth gold in Birmingham in 2022.
Dave, who has Stargardt’s Disease, made his Paralympic Games debut as a swimmer at Beijing in 2008. He then made the move into triathlon after agonisingly missing out on qualification for London 2012 by less than one tenth of a second.
