Daniel retained his F44 discus World Champioinship title in 2006 despite returning to throwing two weeks earlier following knee surgery. He currently holds the Paralympics, World Champ & European Champs discus titles.

In 2001 he became the first Paralympian to represent GB in an able-bodied event when selected for GB Junior team. Danny has a Sports Science degree from Loughborough Uni versity and is studying for a Masters. His ambition is to compete as a non-disabled athlete at London 2012 or the 2016 Olympics.

Daniel was a keen sportsman at school. At 13 he got involved in Charnwood Athletics Club where he started throwing the discus. He is now a member of the Loughborough Students Athletics Club. He spent a couple of weeks on crutches with a knee injury just weeks before the 2006 World Championships, but still managed to retain the title he had won four years earlier in Lille. Beijing was the third successive Paralympics in which he won a medal in the discus, collecting bronze on this occasion after winning gold in 2000 and 2004. In 2010 he won the Paralympic World Cup at Sports City and threw a life-time best of 57.14m at the Loughborough International meeting in May. 2011 saw him win the gold medal with a life-time best throw at the IPC Championships in Christchurch, New Zealnd

His coach Jim Edwards is a former world champion in karate.
