After a tragic accident left Josh Allison paralysed from the chest down in 2011, he thought his sporting days were over. Little did he know that it was the birth of his professional basketball career.
"I got introduced to wheelchair basketball, which gave me a new motivation and led me to make the Australian men's wheelchair team in 2013-19 winning a gold medal in 2014 and going to the Paralympics in 2016."
According to Josh, the Diploma of Sport is an excellent course. He said, "It teaches you about inclusion and participation and what happens behind the scenes in sport. That's why I enrolled in 2020. It gets you to look at sport from a different angle."
Josh enjoyed his time studying at Box Hill Institute and said it was very adaptable to students, whether or not they have a disability. He said, "They are always pushing to get a diverse group and everyone can learn from each other and make themselves better for when they want to get into the industry.
