Patrick first got into boccia through a regional come-and-try multi-sport event. As a 15 year old, it took a while for Patrick to get into the game but after realising he was pretty good at the sport he joined a club in Edinburgh, where he started to get to grips with the intricacies of the game and gain a greater tactical understanding of the sport.
After weekly training sessions, Patrick’s coach suggested he enter a competition and Patrick went on to win gold at the Scottish Championships. With his competitive interest spiked, Patrick has progressed to international competition, winning silver in the BC3 pairs at the 2014 World Championships and beating the World number 2 in competition at the World Open earlier this year.
Patrick is set to make his Paralympic debut at Rio 2016.
