Muninder

My name is Muninder Singh Hayer. I have recently completed a full time Computer Science student at the The University of Nottingham and am a current England international. I love my time volunteering for Cerebral Palsy Sport and giving something back.

I was born with a lack of oxygen which resulted me in having Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral palsy is a condition which affects muscle control and movement. This is an injury usually to the brain caused by complications before, during or after birth. For me CP affects my co-ordination and my ability to walk, therefore I use an electric wheelchair as my usual form of mobility.

I am internationally classified as an F31 seated Club Thrower. I have been competing in this athletic event since the start of 2014 and I have topped the UK rankings in 2014 and 2015. In August 2015 I competed for England at my first international competition which was the CPISRA World Games, where I won a gold medal. This place me 3rd in the all time world rankings. My key objective is now to be selected for the World Championships in London next year, and all my training is geared towards achieving this goal.

I spent a few hours a week in early 2017 supporting Cerebral Palsy Sport with fundraising activities and really enjoyed it, and have visited schools and given talks as part of The Big Give campaign on behalf of Cerebral Palsy Sport.
