MORE ON MATT FORMSTON
Matt Formston is a blind (5% vision) Paralympian, 3 times world champion surfer, world champion cyclist, world record holder, speaker, executive coach, family man and business executive.
Matt is the epitomy of unconquered, having lost 95% of his vision by the time he was five and told by teachers and doctors that he would never play sport. Matt's parents enrolled him in sport and instead of saying Matt can’t do that said, let’s try it and if Matt can’t do it then let’s find plan B.
Matt never really had to look at plan B as with a desire to achieve and a lot of Aussie mongrel, he found a way. Matt has been a professional athlete for over a decade, sponsored by some of the global sporting brands by fostering the right mindset, behaviors and work ethic.
Matt is an athlete, speaker and executive coach, Chair of the Macquarie Business Park Community Partnership and an Executive Board Member of Blind Sports NSW. With an unconquerable mindset, belief in the healing power of sport and passion to help others, Matt is a perfect ambassador for Invictus Australia.
