Graeme, was a talented runner, a Dorset County Champion, competed in various track and cross country events and aspired to run for England. In July 2006 he was critically injured in a head-on car crash caused by a middle-aged drunk driver and suffered massive internal injuries and a head injury. His right arm and thigh were broken in several places and his left shin shattered. Without the support of the emergency services and expertise of NHS professionals he would have died. Graeme was sent home from hospital for fear he would contract MRSA and confined to bed for 3 months and it was 14 months before he was able to walk unaided. Graeme now suffers from arthritis and has learned to recognise his limitations but continues to run for Wimborne AC where he's affectionately known as 'Bionic'! He has competed in charity fundraisers and is now actively involved in coaching, supporting and inspiring the next generation of runners to achieve their full potential.
