Paralympic dream for Chester sportsman
A disabled table tennis player, who has broken his legs sixty two times, is fighting for a place in the 2012 paralympics.
Scott Robertson, from North Wales, is ranked number one in the UK and he's competed in the past three paralympic games.
Scott, who has a brittle bone condition, combines his training with his job as a administrative assistant at Chester West and Cheshire Council.
He travels ninety miles from his home in Flintshire to his training base in Sheffield twice a week, Scott told Heart he starting playing table tennis at the age of seven when he could no longer play football due to his condition.
The thirty-five year old, who is in a wheelchair, competes in at least six tournaments a year and has won matches all around the world.
He won two gold medals in Argentina last month and will find out in March if he's made it into team GB.
Speaking to Heart, Scott said: "Competing in the games is a huge goal for me as it's in my home country, London 2012 will be amazing".
Scott also lends his time to local schools to teach youngsters about sport.
He said: "London will be perfect to get young people involved in sport, we could find a future talent for the games in Brazil in four years time".
