David Leavy made his Paralympic debut for ParalympicsGB in Rio after first discovering football 7-a-side by watching the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
On his Games debut David helped the ParalympicsGB side to secure a fifth-place finish. Bronze medallists Brazil and gold medallists Ukraine were the only two teams to beat them in the tournament.
Prior to Paralympic competition, David captained Northern Ireland at the 2015 World Championships at St. George’s Park, England and he was the first Northern Irish player to be selected for the ParalympicsGB team.
