George Kambouris

George has never let being in a wheelchair stop him from having a good time in life or from getting out amongst the world.

Born an Australian Greek with Spina Bifida, he has been fortunate enough to have grown up with the love and support of a large family.

The oldest of four boys with all three brothers having sons, George is well liked by all his nephews and god sons and they, like all children, find his passion for life infectious.

George has represented his country here and overseas in a number of National, Pacific and International sporting events.

Having started with swimming and athletics he then took up weightlifting and has won numerous medals for his efforts.

The pinnacle of which was the 1982 FESPIC (Far East and South Pacific) Games in Hong Kong.

In 2000 he was inducted to the Greek Australian Sports Halls of Fame.

Since then, he as taken up handcycling in the last decade. Playing a prominent part in growing the sport both in Queensland and nationally. He just can't get enough!
