Stephen McGuire

Boccia

Stephen McGuire enjoyed a consistent 2017 season and carried that over into this year to remain among the top players in the world in the BC4 category.

But a stunning upset for the then-world No. 1 at his home World Championships in 2018 dropped him to No. 3. However next season is a new start for the Tokyo 2020 hopeful.

McGuire missed an opportunity to play for a Paralympic medal after losing out to eventual champion Yuk Wing Leung of Hong Kong in the quarter finals of Rio 2016, a similar experience to his London 2012 campaign.

He got started with boccia in 2005 with the encouragement of Scottish Disability Sport

He made his Paralympic debut on home soil at London 2012.
