-My name is James Lusted

-and I'm 3'7".

0:00:030:00:07

-I don't believe in the word

-disabled.

0:00:090:00:11

-Oh my gosh.

0:00:120:00:13

-I do believe that everyone can

-take part in some type of sport.

0:00:130:00:17

-I'm no Usain Bolt in these!

0:00:170:00:19

-I used to be a badminton champion.

0:00:200:00:22

-I travelled all over the world

-to compete.

0:00:220:00:25

-It's a really good feeling.

0:00:260:00:28

-In this series, I will meet people

-with disabilities...

0:00:290:00:32

-..who take part

-in all kinds of sports.

0:00:320:00:35

-I will see how that

-can change their lives.

0:00:370:00:40

-I'm on my way

-to the Machynlleth area...

0:00:460:00:49

-..to meet a brother and sister.

0:00:490:00:51

-This is Uwchygarreg, on the road

-between Machynlleth and Dylife.

0:00:550:01:00

-This is where Rhys Lewis

-works on the family farm...

0:01:010:01:05

-..when he's not practising

-his flying skills!

0:01:050:01:07

-This is his sister, Heledd.

0:01:110:01:13

-Both brother and sister

-have to deal with disability...

0:01:140:01:17

-..but they both have

-very different stories.

0:01:180:01:21

-I was born with

-arthrogryposis multiplex.

0:01:220:01:28

-I'm a twin.

0:01:280:01:31

-My sister Sian

-didn't have the condition.

0:01:320:01:37

-When I was a month old,

-I started having physio.

0:01:380:01:43

-Then I had an operation on my legs.

0:01:450:01:49

-That was when I was four.

0:01:500:01:52

-Then I had to have an operation

-to straighten my spine.

0:01:540:02:01

-When I was young...

0:02:030:02:05

-..I just couldn't run...

0:02:060:02:10

-..and couldn't be

-like other children.

0:02:100:02:17

-Annoying is the word I would use.

0:02:180:02:22

-But I take every day as it comes.

0:02:230:02:31

-Her days tend to be quite full!

0:02:350:02:37

-Heledd's interests include

-the Scarlets rugby team...

0:02:380:02:41

-..Cwmni Theatr Maldwyn and taking

-part in Bro Ddyfi YFC activities.

0:02:410:02:47

-I am very independent.

0:02:490:02:53

-I have my own car.

0:02:530:02:57

-I enjoy the freedom of being able

-to come and go as I wish.

0:02:580:03:05

-The family had been used to

-Heledd's disability for years.

0:03:080:03:12

-But little did they think that

-another member of the family...

0:03:130:03:16

-..would end up in a wheelchair

-after an accident on the farm.

0:03:160:03:22

-I had been chopping trees

-all morning.

0:03:230:03:26

-I went up for lunch.

0:03:270:03:28

-Then the first tree I chopped

-straight after lunch...

0:03:290:03:32

-..I remember hearing a crack

-and thinking it wasn't right.

0:03:320:03:36

-I ran away but the tree hit me

-across my back.

0:03:360:03:39

-I knew straight away. I went to feel

-my legs but everything was numb.

0:03:410:03:47

-I couldn't feel anything.

0:03:470:03:49

-I sort of remember leaving

-in the helicopter.

0:03:500:03:54

-I was out of it then

-until I reached Stoke.

0:03:550:03:58

-Rhys spent eight weeks having

-treatment at Stoke Hospital.

0:03:590:04:03

-He spent another seven weeks

-recovering in Gobowen.

0:04:030:04:07

-That's where he heard it was

-unlikely he would walk again.

0:04:070:04:11

-I was expecting it, to be honest.

0:04:120:04:14

-I think the biggest shock

-was for my mother and father.

0:04:150:04:19

-I remained positive throughout.

-I still think I'm quite positive.

0:04:200:04:25

-I think that helps them

-to get through it all.

0:04:250:04:29

-The most difficult part of it...

0:04:310:04:33

-..was coming home

-and not being able to drive.

0:04:330:04:35

-I was stuck in the house

-for about two months.

0:04:360:04:39

-That was the most difficult part.

0:04:410:04:43

-Once I had the go-ahead to drive

-again, I was never home!

0:04:440:04:49

-Rhys has invited me

-to Aberystwyth.

0:04:510:04:53

-He trains there with Heledd and the

-rest of the West Coast Warriors...

0:04:540:04:58

-..a wheelchair basketball team.

0:04:580:05:00

-How long have you been coming

-to the club?

0:05:040:05:07

-I've been playing since 2011.

0:05:070:05:10

-Do you enjoy it?

0:05:110:05:13

-Do you enjoy it?

-

-Yes, it's great.

0:05:130:05:14

-What exactly do you like

-about the club?

0:05:140:05:17

-The banter!

0:05:180:05:20

-I'm sure you have a lot of fun.

0:05:200:05:21

-When I started, I couldn't shoot

-the ball into the basket.

0:05:230:05:28

-But now, I can do that.

0:05:280:05:33

-It was a great feeling...

0:05:330:05:37

-..when I started

-being able to do that.

0:05:370:05:43

-What made Rhys take an interest?

0:05:450:05:47

-I actually suggested basketball

-to him.

0:05:480:05:55

-He was still in hospital in Gobowen.

0:05:560:06:03

-A week or two before I was given

-the go-ahead to come home...

0:06:050:06:08

-..I went to training in Aberystwyth.

0:06:080:06:10

-How did the doctors react?

0:06:110:06:12

-How did the doctors react?

-

-I didn't tell them!

0:06:120:06:14

-The less they know, the better.

0:06:140:06:16

-It was something

-to give me some focus.

0:06:170:06:20

-In a club like that, you start

-talking to different people.

0:06:200:06:24

-Many have gone through

-the same thing.

0:06:240:06:27

-I played rugby for 12 years

-before the accident.

0:06:290:06:32

-It's just a way of coming back

-to the team environment.

0:06:320:06:37

-How did it feel to take part

-in a sport from a wheelchair...

0:06:380:06:41

-..for the first time?

0:06:410:06:43

-It was quite difficult

-at the beginning.

0:06:430:06:46

-I was starting

-a completely new sport for me.

0:06:460:06:49

-I'd never played basketball,

-let alone wheelchair basketball.

0:06:490:06:54

-It's surprising how you can pick up

-new skills when you have to.

0:06:550:07:00

-Do you have quite

-a competitive relationship?

0:07:050:07:08

-Yes, I'd say so.

0:07:090:07:10

-Who wins normally?

0:07:110:07:13

-Who wins normally?

-

-Him.

0:07:130:07:14

-Well done, well done.

0:07:140:07:16

-Right answer!

0:07:160:07:17

-I've always been competitive.

0:07:200:07:22

-It doesn't matter what I do,

-I want to win.

0:07:230:07:25

-That's the main reason why I'm here.

-I'm here to compete and win.

0:07:250:07:29

-I try to pass that on

-to some of the other players...

0:07:300:07:32

-..who may be here just to have fun.

0:07:330:07:35

-Whether you win or lose, we have to

-work as a team. But you aim to win!

0:07:350:07:40

-James!

0:07:420:07:43

-It's great to see

-a cross section of ages.

0:07:450:07:49

-Everyone takes part in the game.

0:07:490:07:52

-They have a lot of fun.

0:07:520:07:54

-They don't hold back at all.

0:07:540:07:56

-They're quite fierce

-with the ball and with the chairs.

0:07:560:07:59

-They knock into each other.

-It's a bit like rugby!

0:07:590:08:02

-Third time lucky!

0:08:080:08:09

-Basketball isn't the only sport

-Rhys does.

0:08:170:08:20

-Since the accident...

0:08:210:08:22

-..he has rekindled an interest

-from years ago.

0:08:230:08:27

-I went over to Trefeglwys

-to see him practising.

0:08:270:08:30

-Hiya, Rhys.

0:08:340:08:34

-Hiya, Rhys.

-

-Hiya, James. Are you OK?

0:08:340:08:36

-How are you?

0:08:360:08:37

-How are you?

-

-Oh, alright!

0:08:370:08:39

-When did you start shooting?

0:08:390:08:41

-When did you start shooting?

-

-I've pretty much always done it.

0:08:410:08:43

-But I've been doing it competitively

-for about 18 months.

0:08:430:08:47

-I just picked up a gun

-and gave it a go.

0:08:470:08:51

-I've been interested in the sport

-for years.

0:08:520:08:55

-My grandfather represented Wales

-in the sport.

0:08:560:08:58

-I just thought

-it would be something to do.

0:08:590:09:01

-What I find difficult, compared

-with people without a disability...

0:09:020:09:07

-..is swinging out to the angle.

0:09:070:09:10

-I can't turn my whole body,

-only my arms.

0:09:110:09:15

-But you adapt to that.

0:09:160:09:19

-The gun looks quite heavy. Is it?

0:09:200:09:23

-It weighs about nine pounds.

0:09:240:09:26

-It's heavy to hold in one place

-for long.

0:09:260:09:30

-It looks bigger than me!

0:09:300:09:32

-Let's see.

0:09:330:09:35

-Yes, it is. Only just.

0:09:360:09:37

-Rhys competes against people

-without disabilities.

0:09:400:09:43

-He does very well.

0:09:440:09:46

-Not only is he a member of the

-Wales team, he's also the captain.

0:09:470:09:51

-It was a shock to get into the team.

0:09:520:09:55

-It was an even bigger shock

-to be named captain.

0:09:550:09:58

-But it's a fantastic experience.

0:09:590:10:03

-I was quite nervous

-at the beginning.

0:10:040:10:06

-But once you get to know people,

-it doesn't matter who you are.

0:10:070:10:10

-We're all friends in this sport.

0:10:110:10:13

-How do the competitions work?

0:10:150:10:17

-If you hit the clay with the first

-barrel, you get three points.

0:10:180:10:21

-Second barrel kill is two points.

0:10:210:10:23

-If you miss, you get zero.

0:10:230:10:25

-In terms of competitions,

-the best score is 100 clays hit...

0:10:250:10:32

-..with 300 points.

0:10:320:10:34

-At the moment,

-my personal best is 100, 298.

0:10:350:10:41

-I'm two second barrels

-off the perfect score.

0:10:410:10:44

-You compete against yourself

-most of the time.

0:10:450:10:49

-But you also try to beat

-those around you.

0:10:500:10:54

-I'm amazed at Rhys' strength...

0:10:550:10:57

-..and his attitude to life.

0:10:580:10:59

-You must be positive.

0:11:000:11:02

-You hear a lot of stories

-about people...

0:11:030:11:07

-..who've hit rock bottom

-after an accident.

0:11:070:11:11

-But the most important thing to

-remember is that life doesn't stop.

0:11:120:11:16

-You have to carry on

-doing something.

0:11:160:11:18

-In Part Two, I'll meet

-another athlete who's aiming high.

0:11:220:11:27

-My goal is to reach the Paralympics

-and the Commonwealth Games.

0:11:290:11:32

-And I'll attend a boccia tournament.

0:11:330:11:36

-It's a very popular game for people

-with all sorts of disabilities.

0:11:440:11:46

-Boccia is quite a popular game as a

-sport for people with disabilities.

0:11:500:11:54

-It's quite similar to bowls but

-the balls are made of leather...

0:11:550:11:59

-..filled with sand

-and they're also quite soft.

0:11:590:12:03

-The simple aim

-is to get your ball...

0:12:030:12:05

-..as close as possible

-to the white ball.

0:12:060:12:08

-And if you can hit your

-opponents' balls, even better.

0:12:100:12:15

-I've had lots of fun playing

-this game over the years.

0:12:170:12:21

-Today, I'm going to watch

-a tournament...

0:12:210:12:24

-..at Porthmadog Leisure Centre.

0:12:240:12:27

-Thirty-two teams

-have come here to compete.

0:12:270:12:31

-There is also a good crowd to cheer

-teams like Blaenau Globetrotters...

0:12:310:12:35

-..Dysynni Daredevils

-and the Bobby Dazzlers.

0:12:350:12:39

-One of those helping to run

-the tournament is Marcus Politis.

0:12:410:12:44

-He's the Disability Sport Wales

-Development Officer in Gwynedd.

0:12:450:12:48

-It's a very popular game nowadays.

0:12:490:12:51

-It's definitely

-one of the most inclusive.

0:12:520:12:55

-We start with a white ball...

0:12:550:12:57

-..and there are six blue balls

-and six red balls.

0:12:580:13:02

-The aim is to get the balls as close

-as possible to the target ball.

0:13:020:13:06

-It's a Paralympic game, designed

-for those with cerebral palsy.

0:13:100:13:14

-But people with other disabilities

-can also play.

0:13:140:13:18

-Generally,

-it's a physical disability.

0:13:190:13:23

-But it's inclusive, so it brings in

-conditions like dementia.

0:13:230:13:28

-Some people with learning

-disabilities play as well.

0:13:290:13:32

-There are four teams

-from Antur Waunfawr here.

0:13:320:13:35

-One of their members

-is Meical Jones.

0:13:360:13:38

-He loves the game.

0:13:380:13:40

-What do you enjoy about this game?

0:13:410:13:44

-I enjoy every game.

0:13:440:13:46

-Are you a competitive person?

0:13:460:13:49

-Oh, yes.

0:13:490:13:51

-You've been playing all morning.

-How's it going?

0:13:540:13:58

-It's going well.

0:13:580:13:59

-Have you won?

0:13:590:14:00

-Have you won?

-

-Not yet.

0:14:000:14:02

-A game's a game.

0:14:020:14:04

-Getting people into the sport

-in the first place is the challenge.

0:14:060:14:10

-An event like this is pioneering.

0:14:110:14:14

-It's a big magnet to attract people.

0:14:140:14:16

-We just want them to play

-every week now.

0:14:160:14:19

-Boccia became part of

-the Paralympic Games in 1984.

0:14:190:14:23

-It is now played in over

-50 countries all over the world.

0:14:230:14:29

-Games like boccia don't get

-as much coverage on television.

0:14:300:14:34

-But they're important because

-they offer opportunities...

0:14:350:14:38

-..to people

-with severe disabilities.

0:14:380:14:41

-At Disability Sport Wales...

0:14:420:14:43

-..we consider boccia

-to be an important sport.

0:14:430:14:46

-It targets many people

-with severe disabilities.

0:14:470:14:50

-Boccia is one of my favourites.

0:14:510:14:54

-I was quite good at it.

0:14:540:14:56

-I wasn't as good as my brother.

-He was really good.

0:14:560:14:59

-I enjoyed this game.

0:15:000:15:02

-I'm quite a competitive person so

-I always tried something different.

0:15:020:15:08

-It's great to be here today...

0:15:090:15:11

-..and to be reminded of those

-nice memories from years ago.

0:15:110:15:15

-Every athlete needs commitment

-to succeed.

0:15:310:15:34

-Athletes with disabilities

-need even more.

0:15:350:15:38

-Mathew Williams from Bangor doesn't

-know the meaning of the word fail.

0:15:400:15:45

-He knows exactly

-what he wants to do.

0:15:450:15:48

-I have cerebral palsy

-and it affects my legs.

0:15:490:15:53

-It also affects my arm a little.

0:15:530:15:55

-It can be a hassle but not really.

0:15:560:16:00

-I'm used to it.

0:16:000:16:02

-Mathew started walking

-when he was two.

0:16:020:16:06

-We realized he was stiff.

0:16:070:16:11

-That's when we got

-the professionals involved.

0:16:120:16:16

-I found out

-that he had cerebral palsy.

0:16:160:16:20

-He had problems. He had to have

-physio, hospital appointments.

0:16:200:16:24

-I had to give up work

-to be a full-time carer.

0:16:250:16:28

-That was that. He has cerebral

-palsy. Get on with it.

0:16:290:16:33

-I've brought him up...

0:16:350:16:36

-..with the attitude of

-if you want to do something, do it.

0:16:370:16:40

-I've always said

-there's nothing he can't do.

0:16:400:16:43

-That's why he's so determined

-to do everything.

0:16:430:16:48

-Think of where it's going to be...

0:16:510:16:53

-..before it lands

-and then hit straight away.

0:16:530:16:56

-I did swimming, running, climbing,

-cycling, some basketball...

0:16:570:17:03

-..and football.

0:17:030:17:05

-It gives me a focus.

0:17:060:17:09

-I really enjoy it.

0:17:100:17:11

-His father bought him a bike.

0:17:120:17:14

-So Mathew wanted to ride it.

0:17:150:17:17

-He tried to do a revolution

-and fell off.

0:17:180:17:21

-I was watching him

-from the landing window.

0:17:210:17:24

-I watched him for about two hours -

-or even longer.

0:17:240:17:27

-He started again, fell off,

-started again, fell off.

0:17:280:17:31

-Started again, fell off.

0:17:310:17:33

-Mathew kicked the bike, stomped

-around and went back to the bike.

0:17:330:17:37

-Suddenly, he'd done a revolution.

0:17:370:17:40

-It was like a light bulb

-had come on in his eyes.

0:17:400:17:43

-He set his mind to it and was

-determined to do it - and he did!

0:17:440:17:48

-No matter how long it took.

0:17:480:17:49

-Mathew was clearly talented

-in all sorts of sport.

0:17:510:17:54

-As he grew up...

0:17:550:17:57

-..he came to the attention of

-Disability Sport Wales officers.

0:17:580:18:01

-They were able

-to offer him some advice.

0:18:020:18:04

-Mathew is now concentrating

-on two sports.

0:18:050:18:08

-Lifting weights and shot-put.

0:18:080:18:12

-He comes to Wrexham once a week

-to practise the shot-put...

0:18:120:18:16

-..with his coach, Ian Robinson.

0:18:160:18:20

-Hello. How's it going?

0:18:250:18:27

-Hello. How's it going?

-

-It's going well, thanks.

0:18:270:18:29

-What weight

-are you throwing tonight?

0:18:300:18:32

-It's 4kg, which is quite easy

-once you've warmed up enough.

0:18:320:18:38

-What's your best distance?

0:18:390:18:41

-In training, it's 7.20.

0:18:410:18:44

-In competition, it's about 6.50.

0:18:450:18:48

-I try to get my score in competition

-to match my training score.

0:18:490:18:55

-So that's what I'm trying to achieve

-with Ian and Sabrina.

0:18:560:18:59

-Not bad. Yes, good. I like that one.

0:18:590:19:02

-Sabrina Fortune comes from Mold.

0:19:030:19:05

-She's a member

-of the GB Paralympic squad...

0:19:060:19:08

-..and she won a bronze medal

-at the Rio Games in 2016.

0:19:090:19:12

-I'm really good friends

-with her now.

0:19:130:19:17

-I really enjoy going to Wrexham

-to see her and work with her.

0:19:170:19:21

-She helps make my sport

-a lot more personal to me.

0:19:220:19:28

-There is someone else,

-not with the same condition...

0:19:290:19:33

-..because it's different but it's a

-nice feeling being part of a group.

0:19:330:19:38

-What's it like training with Mathew?

0:19:400:19:41

-What's it like training with Mathew?

-

-It's a lot of fun.

0:19:410:19:43

-We need a lot of comedy

-so we have a lot of fun.

0:19:430:19:47

-He's improved so much

-the time I've been with him.

0:19:470:19:50

-I think he'll go really far with it.

0:19:500:19:52

-Praise from Sabrina. But shot-put

-isn't Mathew's only sport.

0:19:530:19:58

-He comes to Bangor

-three times a week...

0:20:030:20:05

-..to practise weightlifting

-with his coach, Tiffany Brannan.

0:20:060:20:10

-Push it.

-You can go harder than that.

0:20:150:20:17

-Relax!

0:20:200:20:21

-Well, that looks quite difficult.

0:20:220:20:25

-Well, that looks quite difficult.

-

-Do you want a go?

0:20:250:20:26

-I'll give it a go.

0:20:260:20:28

-I'll give it a go.

-

-Three, two, one and we go.

0:20:280:20:30

-OK and relax.

0:20:320:20:34

-Perfect.

0:20:340:20:35

-Cool. That's hard.

0:20:360:20:37

-Very impressive.

-You're much better than me.

0:20:370:20:40

-I know!

0:20:410:20:42

-Now, it's time to move on to

-the bench to get ready to lift.

0:20:430:20:48

-But how much strain

-does that put on Mathew's body?

0:20:480:20:51

-It doesn't really hurt.

-It feels hard but it's not painful.

0:20:510:20:57

-It shows that I'm pushing myself.

0:20:570:21:00

-I'm sure it must help

-with the shot-put.

0:21:010:21:03

-It gives me more power to throw.

0:21:030:21:06

-It definitely helps.

0:21:070:21:10

-My body has really matured

-and everything looks great now.

0:21:100:21:15

-Of course, it's important

-to keep fit...

0:21:170:21:19

-..when you have a condition

-like cerebral palsy.

0:21:190:21:22

-Yes. Every sport I've done

-has been a big help.

0:21:230:21:28

-The biggest weight Mathew

-has ever lifted is 80kg.

0:21:300:21:35

-That's how much is on the bar now.

0:21:350:21:37

-And drive. Drive.

0:21:380:21:39

-Great. And in.

0:21:390:21:41

-Fantastic. Up you get.

0:21:420:21:44

-Wow! That's heavy.

0:21:440:21:46

-80 now.

0:21:460:21:47

-Well done.

0:21:470:21:48

-But you made it look easy!

0:21:490:21:51

-But that's not enough for today.

0:21:520:21:55

-He's determined to break

-his personal record.

0:21:550:21:58

-What do you have to do

-to prepare to lift that?

0:21:590:22:02

-I just have to focus

-on my breathing.

0:22:020:22:05

-I have to make sure

-everything is relaxed...

0:22:050:22:08

-..and that nothing

-is causing me pain.

0:22:080:22:11

-That's the main key

-for me to do the best I can do.

0:22:110:22:15

-I'll let you prepare.

0:22:160:22:19

-You let me know when you're ready.

0:22:200:22:22

-He has 85kg on the bar.

0:22:240:22:27

-That's over 13 stone.

0:22:270:22:29

-OK?

0:22:290:22:30

-Er... yeah.

0:22:300:22:32

-Three, two, one, up.

0:22:320:22:33

-Yours.

0:22:340:22:36

-Drive. Keep driving, keep driving.

0:22:370:22:39

-Lovely. And in.

0:22:390:22:41

-A new record for Mathew.

0:22:410:22:43

-Well done. Well done.

0:22:430:22:45

-Well done. Well done.

-

-Thank you.

0:22:450:22:46

-How did that feel?

0:22:460:22:47

-How did that feel?

-

-It felt OK.

0:22:470:22:49

-Do you want more?

0:22:490:22:50

-Do you want more?

-

-No!

0:22:500:22:51

-That's enough for one day...

0:22:540:22:56

-..but I know Mathew

-will be back for more tomorrow.

0:22:560:23:00

-He has quite a few ambitions.

0:23:000:23:02

-My main goal is to reach

-the Paralympics...

0:23:020:23:05

-..and the Commonwealth Games.

0:23:050:23:07

-Either with the shot-put

-or weightlifting.

0:23:080:23:11

-I want to be the main top athlete.

0:23:110:23:14

-I want children to say...

0:23:150:23:16

-.."That's Mathew Williams,

-I want to be like him.

0:23:170:23:20

-"He's the main athlete."

0:23:200:23:22

-I'll tell everyone that

-there's nothing you can't do.

0:23:230:23:26

-It's all in the mind.

0:23:260:23:28

-You just have to work hard.
