Curtis McGrath - OAM - Australian Paracanoeist
Curtis McGrath is a para-canoeist like no other. On the 23rd of August, 2012, young soldier Curtis McGrath’s life changed forever. The decorated Sapper was two months into a tour of Taliban-rife areas of Afghanistan when he stepped on a homemade landmine, otherwise known as an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). The then 24-year-old tragically lost both his legs in the blast.
Thirty minutes after losing both his legs in a horrific blast in Afghanistan, in those traumatic moments as he was being stretchered from the bomb site, Curtis was already thinking about pursuing a career as an amputee athlete. He didn't know what sport he was going to do, but his positive outlook and determination to rebound and get on with achieving his driving ambitions is what has made this man get to where he is today.
Curtis only took up outrigger canoeing in January 2014 and has made it all the way to be one of the fastest sprint canoeists in the world. In 2014, he won the Australian and Oceania Championships in V1 200m, 500m and 1000m events. In 2016, he fulfilled his goal of winning the Men's KL2 200m at the 2016 Rio Paralympics in a Paralympic record time of 42.190. Curtis was given the honour of being the Australian Flag Bearer at the Rio Paralympics Closing Ceremony.
Come and hear Curtis' real story of triumph over tragedy from an Australian Hero at this year's Massive Action Day.
