Nathan is one of GB’s most promising young throwers, he made his summer Games debut in Beijing but was a member of the GB team ice sledge hockey at Turin 2006 winter Paralympics. Nathan had both his legs amputated after being run over by a freight train aged 9. His preferred event is the javelin and aims to be best in the world by London 2012.

He first started athletics when he was 14 after his coach spotted him in at a Rotary Club Games. Since then he has became a talented athlete winning gold medals for all three of his events in the DSE British Open Athletics Championships, at the Junior World Championships and Belgium Open Athletics Championships amongst many other competitions. He wants to be the first British athlete to medal at both winter and summer Paralympics He narrowly missed out on a medal at the 2008 Paralympic Games, placing 4th, but in 2010 at the IWAS World Junior Championships in Olomouc hee won gold at both the javelin and discus and in 2011 at the IPC Athletic Championships in Christchurch he also secured the gold medal in the javelin.
