As a baby, Peter was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome. His health rapidly detioriated as his Kidneys failed meaning his early childhood was spent in and out of hospital, on and off dialysis machines. His chances of ever living a happy, health, normal life were slim. Aged 3 he recieved a life-saving Kidney Transplant from a deceased donor. Almost straight away after the operation, he had energy levels which could light up a small town and he has barely looked back since! Since age 9 Peter has been part of the 'British Transplant Games'. The Games are an annual celebration of life and health for people who have undergone transplantation. He has competed in almost every event possible and through dedicated training, has been able to win medals and qualify three times to represent Great Britain in the World Transplant Games. In Bangkok, Thailand in 2007, in the Gold Coast, Australia in 2009 and Gothenburg, Sweden this year. He has won Golds in 5km, 800m and 400m and silver in Badminton, amongst others. He now spends time helping fundraising efforts for 'Transplant Sport UK', raising awareness of the importance of signing the Organ Donor register to young people in Sixth form colleges and is also using his own experiences and ideas to work with patients and Dr's in the UK's first Renal Clinic that caters solely to Young Adult patients. Peter's life so far, is an inspirational story of huge triumph over even greater adversity that embodies the Olympic spirit.
