Cameron Crombie breaks World Record in Gold Medal win

UC Ginninderra Athletics Club Athlete, Cameron Crombie, competing in his first ever International Competition, has broken the Mens F38 Shot Put World Record on his way to the Gold Medal at the London 2017 World Para Athletics Championships.  Cameron threw 15.95m in the final beating the previous record by 38cm and is a 1m improvement on his PB set only in March this year.

Cameron didn’t know he had cerebral palsy until he was 22 and even then Paralympic officials couldn’t find a classification for his impairment. Crombie has hemiplegia in his left arm and leg after a stroke during premature birth, but the 31-year-old was never told of his condition and grew up playing sport alongside his identical twin brother.
