John the powerlifter and paralympian


Down's Syndrome


Graham Miller

Spent this morning in Glasgow at the Venice bodybuilding Gym in Glasgow with John, Sylvia and their amazing coach Stephen.  As John pushed huge weights on the leg press I noticed every now again he would turn his head upwards into the light with the effort, perhaps searching for inspiration.  Telling myself to get ready to click the shutter the next time he did it, he looked up ‘click’ and here it is.  One more stroke and he’d finished his reps and stepped off the machine.  I nearly missed it…
