When it comes to throwing, Aled is the man to beat. From a sporty family, he was a keen sportsman from a young age, representing Wales at swimming as a child and racking up multiple podium finishes at the IWAS World Junior Championships. 

In 2005 he was invited by Disability Sport Wales to try out athletics with a group of elite Paralympians and picked up a shot put and discus for the first time. Finally feeling like he’d found the level playing field he’d been striving for, the sky really was the limit for Aled. 

Going literally from strength to strength, his prowess has known no bounds as he’s gone on to become triple world champion and double Paralympic gold medal winner for both discus and shot put. 

Aled’s on a nine-year unbeaten major tournament run – his last gold medal winning victory coming in the World Para Athletics European Championships in Poland (1-5 June 2021).

Aled was made an MBE in the 2013 New Year’s Honours List.
