Glenn Heazelwood (aka Gator) is training for the 2016 Paralympics in Rio for shot put. He is a courageous bloke who has been on a long journey of rehabilitation. He suffered an ABI as a result of a horrific car accident in his late teens and has had to relearn how to do everything- eat, walk, talk. As a young man he was an extremely talented and passionate sportsman, he played football, basketball and cricket. Now in his late 30s he has found his passion for sport again but this time in the form of the shot put.
