Mental Health Advocate.
Brant Garvey was the first Australian Elite Paratriathlete in his category to participate in the 2016 Rio Paralympics.
Born in 1985 as an above knee amputee, Brant was told that he would never be able to run.
For a long time, he accepted this as an excuse. At the age of 28, after drifting through life without a sense of purpose or direction, Brant decided to stop making excuses and start making a change.
Within a year of trying, failing and succeeding to run on his artificial leg, Brant became the first Australian above knee amputee to compete in an Ironman Triathlon, setting a world record time in the process.
Three years after that, Brant qualified for the Australian Paratriathlon Team to race in the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
Through his resilient mindset and 'no excuses' approach to life, Brant founded his personal development and coaching business, No Xcuses.
Besides his work with corporate organisations, Brant is a passionate advocate for mental health and ambassador for zero2hero.
In 2020, Brant will be competing in the world’s toughest triathlon: the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon.
Besides conquering this incredible challenge, Brant will be dedicating the race to his own wife’s battles with mental health and to raise money for mental health organisations around Australia.
