Good luck to DCU athlete, Padraic Moran who will be competing in the 2012 Paralympic Games which begin on Wednesday 29th August in London.
Competing in the Boccia team event, Padraic has previously won Gold as an individual BC1 player in the World Boccia Championships in Lisbon in 2010 and has since been reclassified as a BC2 athlete, meaning he does not have an assistant on court. Padraic has cerebral palsy and balances his training with studying Communications at DCU and working as a producer in East Coast FM. Speaking about the Paralympic Games Padraic says, “The next generation of athletes that come through, they’re going to see what we go through, they’re going to see the emotion and it will inspire people.”
