Steve Brown

TEAM GB LEADER OF OLYMPIC WHEELCHAIR RUGBY

Steve Brown

In-demand Olympic speaker Steve Brown is a British wheelchair rugby player and Paralympian who led the Great Britain wheelchair rugby team at the London Olympics in 2012.

When Steve was in his early 20s, he was left paralysed from the chest down after a fall from a Cologne balcony in 2005. While rehabilitating at Stoke Mandeville hospital, he watched a wheelchair rugby match and was inspired to try the sport.

Now, Olympic speaker Steve is one of the most recognised faces in the sport, having been involved in numerous television programmes, in addition to his role as a Sky Sports Scholar and a Sky Sports “Living for Sport” mentor.

Following wins at the British National Championships in 2006 and the European Championship in 2007, Steve narrowly missed selection for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but was honoured to lead the Olympic and Paralympic Parade of the Heroes through London on the team’s return.

Wheelchair rugby, also known as “Murderball”, is a fast-paced, frantic, full-contact sport of which its exposure has grown exponentially in recent years, and Steve became a household name in his own nation when he led Team GB at the 2012 Olympics in London. An inspirational athlete to all, and a role model athlete with a never say die attitude, the Paralympic speaker is undoubtedly one of the most inspirational athletes to currently offer his services as an after dinner speaker.
