At just 3 days old, Australian Paralympian gold-medalist Dylan Alcott had a tumor the size of a watermelon removed from his spine, which would make him a paraplegic for life. However, his admirable outlook and motivation has seen him gaining notoriety for his Olympic endeavours, love of music festivals and willingness to live life to the fullest. PLGRM were lucky enough to spend some time with the inspirational young man in this very candid piece. We gained an insight into the difficulties Dylan faces as a disabled person, winning gold at the Olympics, overcoming his physical and mental limitations, partying overseas, playing tennis for 24 hours-straight and performing with Ghostface Killah of The Wu-Tang Clan at Meredith Music Festival.
