My Story

My name is Matthew Levy I am 35 years of age, I was born premature at 25 week with Cerebral Palsy and I am legally blind. I have had approximately 40-50 operations ranging from Heart, Lungs, brain and ear. From the very beginning life was a challenge the support of my parents and countless medical professionals.

I started swimming when I was 5 or 6 and found it was a great way to get my limbs moving and improve my health.

When I was 12 years old, I competed for the first time at the NSW state championships – not particularly successfully but competition was now in my blood.
