David made his Paralympic debut at Athens 2004 at the age of 15, where he reached the finals in his main event, the 100m backstroke S9. During a 12 year career, he won numerous medals at IPC Swimming World and European Championships.
David retired from swimming in the summer of 2012, before joining the British para-triathlon squad in 2013 to become a regular fixture in international competition.
At Rio 2016, triathlon made its debut on the Paralympic programme and David finished tenth in the men's PT4 event.
Away from sport David's passion is construction and he is a qualified joiner, a skill that helps him make small technical adjustments to his bike. In his spare time he loves to design and make bespoke furniture and he is also involved in athlete mentoring.
