Coming Through Hard Times & Going For Gold with a Disability

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Anthony Bryan

major brain tumor caused a stroke

My name is Anthony. At the age of 6 years old I was diagnosed with a major brain tumor, which had to be operated on. Due to the amount of pressure on my brain at such a young age, I suffered a stroke during the operation. This resulted in me loosing the use of my left side and I had to relearn how walk and do everything with one hand.  

Sports have always been a big part of my life. Participating in everything I could from football to athletics. It took me along time to recover and build my strength and confidence again. At school I was always the quiet shy one. Now I feel it's time to put myself out there and show everyone just what I can do! I am just as strong and able as anyone even with my new difficulties.

i have found ways to adapt with my disability

I have been doing athletics for a number of years now and I train everyday (sometimes twice a day) on the running track and in the gym. Even with my disability I have found ways to adapt and can now run at great speeds! I can even overtake able bodied athletes!

This Year I have been selected to represent team England in the CPISRA World Games in the T37 800m & 1500m held in Barcelona! I want so show that no matter what you have been through, you can still achieve anything if you just put your mind to it! Just small steps at a time and you will get there!

check out my training

I have decided to show and document all my training leading up to the world games on my Instagram and Facebook:

I will try and show as much as I can from track running sessions to weight lifting sessions in the gym leading up to the world games. I hope that it is useful and I will come back with that gold! :)
