SCOTT REARDON

Scott Reardon is a retired Australian Paralympic sprinter and water skier. 

Scott grew up on his family farm in Temora, New South Wales and at just 12-years-of-age, Scott was involved in an accident where his shoelace got caught in the power take-off shaft of a tractor, severing his right leg. 

Remarkably, Scott relearned how to walk in just a week - perhaps a sign of his success to come. 

Scott went on to become the first person with a disability to win his state's able bodied water skiing competition and in 2007, he earned a gold medal for the jump event at the 2007 Disabled World Championships in Townsville. Scott added to his medal tally in 2009, winning a trio of gold medals at the Australian Tournament Waterski disabled titles. 

In athletics, Scott is a T42 classified athlete. He made his Paralympic debut at the 2012 London Paralympics, where he won a silver medal in the Men's 100m T42 and placed fourth in the Men's 200m T42. 

At the 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships in Lyon, Scott won gold in the Men's 100m and silver in the Men's 200m T42 events. 

Scott went on to win again at the 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha, taking out the Men's 100m T42 in 12.13. 

In 2017 at the World Para Athletics Championships in London, Scott won his third consecutive Men's 100m T42 title with a time of 12.21.

At the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics, Scott qualified for the Men's 100m T63 final, finishing fifth in the final.

Scott is married to fellow Australian Paralympic athlete Vanessa Low
