‘It’s all about attitude’

Published: November 8, 2011

AUSTRALIAN hand cycling champion Michael Taylor is on track to represent his country at the London Paralympics next year.

If named in the Australian squad it will be a massive achievement for the Bendigo sportsman, who is paralysed from the chest down after a motorcycle accident eight years ago.

Before his accident Michael loved getting on his bike, and he saw no reason for that to change when his legs stopped working.

“I’m still the same, but instead of being six foot one, I’m four foot nothing,” he laughed.
