I AM LIAM TWOMEY
Elite Triathlete and Aspiring Tokyo Paralympian
I was born in 1994 and at age 7 I was diagnosed with a Ewing Sarcoma and had my lower right leg amputated.
I struggled throughout school feeling different and less than everyone else. My teenage years were filled with self destructive behavior, trouble and grief.
At 21 the light bulb went on that I was going nowhere quickly, so I moved to Sydney to start afresh.
In 2016 I learnt to swim which eventually led to trying a para-triathlon in 2018. I entered my first race and was hooked within 30 seconds.
My goal is to represent Australia at the 2021 Tokyo Paralympics and beyond!
