Changing his world - with the help of his friends

Leo has Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia and attends SDR Fitness Wales 4 times a year for 3-day intensive physical therapy sessions with Mark Shane Harries. In addition, he attends a weekly strength training programme with Daniela Dietl in Greystones. He needs specialised therapies and equipment for him to reach his potential.
Leo is a remarkably brave and most determined young man and his ambition is to become a para-olympic athlete. He faces his challenges with strength and courage and refuses to allow his disability to hold him back. He has faced many gruelling surgeries in his short life. The most difficult one is yet to come, in January 2020, when his right leg will be surgically lengthened.
