Steve Angus will head to Nottingham in August to represent England in the CPISRA World Games.
The 38-year-old Sunderland and Stanley member is part of a six strong bowls squad aiming to win medals and inspire other young people with cerebral palsy to get involved in sport.
After securing his place in Team CP England, Steve, who has cerebral palsy, will compete at the international competition to be held at the Nottingham Indoor Bowls Centre in August this year.
Steve took up the sport at the age of 14 and despite his cerebral palsy affecting his arms, legs and balance, he hasn’t let his disability hold him back from chasing his dream of sporting stardom.
Nottingham is the heart of the CPISRA World Games and are being held at the newly developed Harvey Hadden Sports Complex, with the opening ceremony taking place on August 9, and the closing ceremony on August 15.
Athletes from 13 countries will compete in a variety of sports including athletics, bowls, the first ever Under-19 football championship and swimming.
In addition, there will also be two demonstration competitions for table cricket and para Taekwondo.
The Games were last staged in England in 2001.
The Games take place from August 6-16, at the Harvey Hadden Sports Complex in Nottingham.
