#8. Ayaz Bhuta: Wheelchair Rugby Paralympian
Play • 48 min

Ayaz Bhuta is a Wheelchair Rugby Paralympian for Great Britain. Born with Robert’s Syndrome, a genetic disorder which impairs growth. Ayaz has gone on to becoming a professional athlete, competing in the Rio 2016 Paralympics, winning two European championships, a Bronze medalist and a fans’ MVP.

Born in Bolton (UK), Ayaz shares his story about being born with disabilities, how he has adapted to a world designed for ‘able-bodied’ people, disability in the Muslim community, experiences as a professional Muslim athlete and much more!

We really enjoyed speaking with Ayaz. His story is inspirational and provides a good insight into disability, life as a professional athlete and dealing with hardship.
