Oliver Lam-Watson

Athlete

Oliver smiles at the camera he has a medal

My names Oliver, I’m 25 and I was born with a disability that affects my left leg. About two years ago a doctor told me I would spend the rest of my life on crutches and never be an athlete. Life on crutches was a bitter pill to swallow, fortunately I had no plans on becoming an athlete, but I really don’t like being told what to do. A year and a half later I’m now I’m a Team GB Wheelchair fencer. Do what you can’t.
