CLUB ENVIRONMENT
In 2016 he said that working under coaches Jenny Archer and David Weir at the Weir Archer Academy has aided his progression as a Para athlete. "It is great because Dave and Jen will push me and make me work really, really hard. I am training alongside so many great guys here and we all work as a team, pushing each other and making each other stronger. When one of us isn't feeling right we all communicate and help each other, so it is a really good atmosphere. I actually believe that it is because of that great atmosphere, that I have been able to build more confidence and improve." (the3scribblers.wordpress.com, 03 Nov 2016)
