Brant did in his first ever triathlon in 2013 before competing in the triathlon at the 2016 Rio Paralympics. He says he wanted to compete in a sport "that was difficult for an able-bodied person let alone someone with one leg".
Brants finishing position at Rio was immaterial, 'saying that the race on the famous Rio beachfront was one of the highlights of his life.
"Without a doubt. The roar of that crowd - you can't compare it to anything."
Great to listen to as he has no pretences. Very engaging communicator to a broad audience with a down to earth, honest recount of his experiences with a valuable message.
