    What an amazing guy – shame I ran out of space on my recorder..read Antoni’s nomination story: – Antoni is someone who does not let anything faze him despite being disabled. He is very committed and will tackles every challenge that is put in front of him with gusto. His enthusiasm and determination to succeed has made him successful across a wide range of sports. Antoni has represented Waltham Forest at the London Youth Games at both disability swimming and disability athletics. He won Gold for his performance in Javelin and Silver for the 200m. Antoni has also been chosen to represent Essex at cricket, succeeding both as bowler and batsman. Football is the sport in which he has excelled. He is a core member of the Forest Challengers football team, representing them at disability tournaments and matches, where he has proved himself to be a quick and talented striker. He has represented the London FA and was selected to attend an advanced football training camp at Lilleshall. Antoni is a great role model and if he continues to show the same drive and determination his achievements will be even greater, perhaps a future Paralympian!
