At just 13, Nic was invited to a weeklong ski camp with Camp Quality. As someone who had never participated in snow sports before, his parents were surprised at his instant fondness, and there began his long-lasting love story with skiing!
After attending his second Camp Quality ski event, Nicholas caught the eye of scouts, and was invited to attend a training camp with the NSW Sports Council for the Disabled. This was an exciting moment in his journey to becoming a Paralympian and from here he spent numerous summer holidays travelling to Canada and the United States alongside the Australian Winter Paralympic team.
Every school holiday, Nicholas attended camps with the Australian Institute of Sport. His commitment and perseverance saw his Paralympic career begin at the 2006 Italy Winter Paralympics with a specially designed prosthetic leg.
Taking him to Canada again, Nic returned to the snow scene in the 2010 Paralympics, where he moved to skiing on one leg. He competed in a number of Alpine skiing events and is incredibly proud to have represented Australia on the international sporting stage.
