Tony Christiansen

Tony was nine when he lost his legs in a railway accident. In no way has this slowed him down, instead it seems to have inspired him to do more! Tony has a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, is a qualified surf lifesaver and pilot, and had his own business before he was 30. Tony has also raced cars, and has represented New Zealand at the Far Eastern and South Pacific Games for the Handicapped.(FESPIC) and Paralympic Games, winning 35 medals. Tony is now a much sought after motivational speaker.
