My name is David Jack Wilson and I was born missing my right forearm. Since I was old enough to understand disability, I have dreamed of being at the Paralympics representing
Great Britain. When I was 8 years old I lost my father. Since then I have always tried my very best to make him proud. Four years later, I picked up his badminton racket for the first time and somehow managed to break it in my 2nd session (haha). Since then i've been on a journey to make him proud and make it to the Paralympics. Subsequently, I've more or less
been on a badminton court twice a week since I was 12 years old to work as hard as I can to achieve it. I currently compete for Wales at Para-Badminton and have reached world number 16 in singles previously number 5 in doubles. I'm training hard with the Badminton Wales High
Performance squad and
this year of Paralympic qualification tournaments and the most important year of my Para-Badminton career to date. Some of the tournaments that I need to be competing at to qualify are in such as :Australia, China, Thailand and Brazil. These tournaments are where your help will have a massive impact on my road to Tokyo 2020.
If you're reading this and feel like you can help me achieve my dreams, I would be extremely grateful for any help and generosity shown. I hope that your generosity and support I will be provided with an opportunity for me to make my father and my country proud.
