The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is partnering with its Worldwide Paralympic Partner Samsung to provide 30 leading athletes the chance to record exclusive behind-the-scenes video blogs during the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, where they share their everyday training and struggles.

Rio 2016 will be Smith’s third Paralympics. He made his Paralympic debut in boccia at Beijing 2008, winning gold in the team BC1/BC2 event. In London 2012 Smith won a silver and a bronze medal and in 2014, he added the world title to his list of achievements in Beijing, China.
