Cerebral Palsy Sport are delighted to announce that Steve Judge has joined the team of Ambassadors for the charity.
Steve is a two times Paratriathlon World Champion winning in China in 2011 and New Zealand in 2012.
His story starts back in his childhood where he was always setting goals and working towards them, initially in the Scout movement achieving badges and awards and then in sport as a young man who loved to run. It was when a near fatal car accident crushed his legs and he was told he may never walk again that Steve Judge’s drive, motivation and commitment really came into its own.
Steve’s focus, passion and hard work enabled him to achieve through rehabilitation, growing his leg back and learning to stand again and walk again. The results of the accident left Steve with disability in both of his legs and forced him to think about what he could do rather than what he couldn’t do.
Steve went on to set even more physical goals as a disabled athlete in swimming, cycling and then running progressing him on to the sport of Paratriathlon where he eventually became British, European and World Champion.
Steve’s inspirational story explains the mottos, and mantras he created to continue on his path without leaning on his excuses, instead turning his excuses into challenges.
As a recognised inspirational and motivational speaker and personal life coach Steve shares his thoughts and wisdom through his experiences to enable us to realise our own ultimate goal in life, to work towards it and have, no regrets.
When asked how he felt about being asked to be a Sporting Ambassador for Cerebral Palsy Sport Steve said,
“I was shocked an honoured at the same time. Although my disability is not cerebral palsy the experiences and journey that I have been on enable me to have great synergy with all athletes. I will inspire and motivate all persons involved in Cerebral Palsy Sport to think about what they can participate in rather than what they can’t. To not lean on their excuses but to be the best that they can be when they play and to enjoy life to the full.”
Steve will be joining the other Cerebral Palsy Sport Ambassdors at the AGM and Awards on 8th October at Harvey Hadden Sports Village in Nottingham.
