One arm reaches millions:
Three-year-old Tommy Morrissey's story is as inspiring as it gets, and he continues to break barriers and
prove doubters wrong.
Tommy Morrissey from Florida was born without a right arm under the elbow, but is proving to
millions of people around the world that this won’t prevent him from playing
the sport he loves – golf.
Despite the fact Tommy was
meant to be right handed, he learnt to adapt his movements and use his opposite
arm. He can now not only swing clubs with his left hand, but hits it 70 yards
off the tee with a driver – very impressive for such a youngster.
Tommy’s mother says "there is nothing he can’t do as long he has the right attitude” and Tommy himself says "I do my best.”
Tommy’s positivity and
strength through adversity is inspirational and uplifting and he hopes to reach
and encourage millions of people to understand that challenges, no matter how
difficult, can be overcome.
With the success and legacy of the
Paralympics, disability sport continues to make huge leaps and bounds,
inspiring more and more people to get active.
