Jonny Coggan

Jonny’s involvement with Back Up was as a ski and multi-activity course participant. He has since been involved in Wheelchair Rugby, making his debut for the British team at the 2004 Athens Paralympic Games.

 He enjoys the sport because of the combination of the competitiveness of the game and the camaraderie amongst the team.


He describes his greatest moment in the sport as the victory against Australia in the 2006 World Cup in Christchurch, New Zealand, where he was awarded the title for ‘Best in your class’.


Jonny is looking forward to representing Paralympics GB at London 2012 as he feels competing at the Paralympic Games is the pinnacle of an athlete’s career. He also hopes that it will help to raise the profile of Wheelchair Rugby.
