A hit and run accident at the age of four left him in a coma for 6 months and with multiple injuries which required five years of medical rehabilitation. It was after watching the summer Paralympics of 2012 that he felt inspired to start training as a wheelchair athlete.

Now aged 30, Mo holds multiple IPC World and European Championship medals including a gold in the IPC Athletics World Championships in 2016 in the T3 200m. In European championships he holds a total of two golds, two silvers, and five bronzes, three of which he achieved in last year’s event. He is currently training for the 2019 World Para Athletics Championships which will take place in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in November this year.

Mo trains at the Weir Archer Academy Athletics Club and regularly uses the Invictus Active Racing Wheelchair Trainer in his training sessions.

When asked what he thought of the trainer he smiled and replied “I find it very tense, thank you very much” and added “it plays the ball game that you guys talk about.” He goes on to explain that for years athletes have had to try and replicate what it feels like on the track out on the road, and that the drums of the Invictus Active racing wheelchair trainer really replicate the track and “make it really tense and really hard work”.
