As soon as Michael learned how to walk, he took off running. His ski-enthusiast family made regular trips to the mountains near Canberra where he became addicted to the thrill of bombing down powdery slopes.

When Michael was nine years old, he was diagnosed with bone cancer and his leg was amputated above the knee. After a few challenging years recovering and relearning to walk with one leg, 11-year-old Michael was ready to re-explore the bounds of his physical abilities through sports.

A life of dedication and persistent training turned Michael into the most successful Australian Paralympic athlete at the Paralympic Winter Games. Michael also competes in Para athletics, mountain biking and the Paratriathlon.

"I don’t like to see things as impossible. For me, life is about testing my limits and seeing what is possible."

Inspired by Michael’s story, Toyota Australia began working with the Paralympian in 2002, and the multitalented athlete became an official Toyota brand ambassador in 2007. Toyota is excited to stay by Michael’s side and experience where his next athletic dreams take him.
