Brock Richardson

Brock Richardson gotinvolved in boccia in 2003 when he was 12 years old and has been competing since he was 16. Richardson was born with cerebral palsy and competes in the BC1 category. His family is very supportive and influential to him.

Boccia was his sport of choice because he knew the level he could go to and he knew he would be successful. Boccia has allowed Richardson to travel, build new friendships and have fun doing what he loves.

Richardson has competed at three World Cups, in 2007, 2009, 2011; the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games; the 2010 World Championships as well as the 2011 Parapan American Games in Mexico. One of his biggest accomplishments was coming in the top half of his field in Beijing 2008 at his second international event. Richardson was the recipient of the Junior Athlete award in 2005, the Yes I Can award in 2004 and The Spirit Award at Nationals in 2008.

His goal for London 2012 is to help the team portion the best he can and finish in the top half of his field in individual play. His father, Ed Richardson, is coaching him and will lead him to London.
