Although being visually impaired, Dan grew up in a mainstream school. Dan used to struggle in certain lessons such as maths and English because they were so focussed on reading from a book or off the board, however he always looked forward to PE every week.

Dan found that sport levelled the playing field for him and he found he could adapt well.

Dan was also helped by his dad who was a Paralympian himself competing in three Paralympic Games!
