We are focused on the ability - not the disability - on today’s International Day of People with a Disability.
Yorke Peninsula teenager Hugo Taheny has multiple disabilities, but has made significant achievements in his short life.
⭐He has recently been named as a health ambassador for Down Syndrome Australia he will work with health professionals to advise best practice for working with people with Down Syndrome and feature in a national advertising campaign.
⭐He reached a state record for discus throwing earlier this year when a new category was created for athletes with Down Syndrome.
⭐He is the 2020 Yorke Peninsula Council Young Citizen of the Year.
⭐He has photographs taken at Athletics SA events published every week.
His father John Tahney says that that life with Hugo is full of surprises.
“We don’t know what’s going to be around the corner in six months-time, he said.
“There’s just one surprise after another and if we don’t have a go at one thing you don’t know what the next thing could be.
“That’s the rewarding part of being with Hugo,” he said.
