Paralympian gets Ospreys support

By Ospreys Rugby | 27/08/2012

The Ospreys would like to send very best wishes for a successful Paralympic Games to a rugby Paralympian who hails from Ospreylia.

Twenty-two year old David Anthony from Tonna, Neath is the sole Welshman in Team GB's wheelchair rugby squad taking part in the Paralympics starting this week. 

David began training with the Cardiff Pirates Wheelchair Rugby Team in 2006 and made his debut for the British team in 2008, competing at the Maximus Tournament, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the team won gold.

He enjoys Wheelchair Rugby because it’s a hard-hitting, fast and exciting sport. He is most looking forward to competing in front of a home crowd when he makes his Paralympic debut at London 2012.

One of those cheering on David and his teammates from the sidelines will be Rev. Steve Jones, volunteer Sports Chaplain with the Ospreys  who has been working as a Sports Chaplain at both the Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer.

In the Athletes Village he will be presenting an Ospreys jersey to David, signed by the senior squad as a gesture of support and encouragement from all within the Ospreys. Good luck David to you and your teammates.
