Boccia Champion Tomas doesn’t let his wheelchair hold him back

Tomas Martin has never let the fact he’s confined to a wheelchair get the better of him. Mum Deb tells Rachel Mainwaring how he’s always lived life to the full

DEB and Phil Martin have nothing but respect for their “remarkable” young son Tomas. Despite spending his childhood in and out of hospital with a debilitating condition which causes constant muscle spasms, he has become an independent young man with huge interest in sport.

The 18-year-old, from Rhiwbina, Cardiff, is already a Welsh National Boccia Champion, a wheelchair version of bowls, and he has high hopes of taking part in the 2016 Paralympics.
