Motivational speakers will often say that they had a dream and they finally got to see it through and with Aled Davies that is most certainly the case. When he was just 14 he vowed that he would one day be the proud owner of a gold medal at the Paralympic Games.
Sure enough, in 2012 in London Aled came first in the shot put F42-44 and got a second medal – a bronze – in the discus F42. This was a year after he won a silver medal in the discus at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand. And before that he had already won gold medals at the IWAS World Junior Championships in 2006, 2009 and 2011.
But what do you do when you have achieved your dream? You go on to do even better. And so it was that Aled Davies got four gold medals at the World Championships – in the shot put and discus in 2013 in Lyon, France, and in the same disciplines in 2015 in Doha, Qatar, where the motivational speaker broke his own world record three times.
Aled then went on to win two more gold medals – again, shot put and discus – at the IPC Athletics European Championships in Swansea, Wales, in 2014. This was just weeks after getting a silver medal in the discus at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow where he represented Wales.
