TIM FARR, BRITISH DISABLED SKI TEAM


Tim Farr is a representative of the British Disabled Ski Team and has been since 2005. We at Get Kids Going! are a big supporter of Tim as he is of the charity.

In March 2004 whilst on a University skiing trip Tim had a bad fall whilst attempting a jump when he broke the 1st lumbar vertebra in his back, leaving him paralysed from the waist down. Incredibly within a year of the accident he was back skiing again, this time in a sit-ski. Tim was invited to ski with the British Disabled team of which he is now a member and representative.

Tim has kindly given us an update of his activities having just arrived back from New Zealand, the main activity at the moment for Tim and the other athletes is to train and collect points with the aim of joining the team in Sochi, Russia for the 2014 winter Paralympics.

His plan going forward is to be back on the snow by the 15th October when he will have block training and then races in Holland, America and Austria.

Tim has kindly sent in some photos of his recent training sessions which you can see below. Here is also a link to Tims website where you can keep up to date with his activities - http://www.timfarr.co.uk/timfarr.co.uk/Profile.html
