Knox is 11 years old from Orange NSW and has a limb difference, due to an accident with a lawn mower when he was almost 4 years old which resulted in a below elbow amputation.

Knox spent 4 weeks recovering in hospital and then got on with life. He is himself first and his disability is only a small part of who he is – It doesn’t hold him back. He is very active in many sports, his favourites being rugby union and swimming.
