Paralysed after an accident, Zac Leow [BSc ‘14, BSc(Hons) ‘15] kept on running

June 20, 2018

In 2013, a cycling incident left Zac Leow paralysed, later told he would be lucky to walk again.

Indomitable spirit drove Zac to finish a UWA Honours degree, take up a PhD and, in 2015, compete for Singapore in the ASEAN Para Games, winning silver in the 1500m and setting national records for the 400m, 800m and 1500m.
