Paralympic gold medallist, World champion, European champion, Paralympic World Cup winner and world record holder and, most recently host of his own BBC radio show and the face of Channel 4′s athletics coverage at the London 2012 Paralympic games
His 39 years have seen more experiences than most people manage in a lifetime. In 1994, Danny was facing a promising rugby career when he lost his right arm in a horrific accident while travelling in Australia at just 21 years old. Undeterred Danny returned to Australia with a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to study diving. Here he qualified as the world’s only one-armed scuba diving instructor, which in turn led to a job sharing a tank with 20 sharks four times a day while working at the Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre. Danny has always maintained a positive outlook on life and quickly overcame his life-changing injury to return to his first love, becoming the only known arm amputee playing club rugby in the country and receiving worldwide media attention. He soon turned his attention to athletics where he was quickly competing with the best in the world in the 400m T46 arm amputee class.
