FLYING AND SPORTS AEROBATICS
I did this for a while with a pilot I knew (we have since lost contact).  Even though I will never qualify for a pilots licence it's fun to jump in an aeroplane with another pilot or instructor and take it for a spin.  For a few months in 1998 I was able to get a little free flying time on Friday afternoons, with an instructor from my old flying club when he ferried the club tomahawk to the weekend airfield.

The best flight I ever had was in a Royal Australian Airforce Pilatus PC-9 turboprop trainer with newly graduated, flying officer David Kovalevs (who went on to 75 Squadron to fly Hornets) at RAAF base Pearce in Western Australia before I went to Barcelona in 1992.  In the photo section there is a photo of me in all the flight gear in front of the aircraft I flew.

SWIMMING GOALS

To make top 6 state ranking and top 30 at able-bodied nationals.  
Achieved - rank of 28 in 200 Breaststroke at Canbere short course nationals 1999

I also want to at least equal my Atlanta Paralympics medal and world record tally at Sydney 2000.  
Failed - however due to the improvement in the standard of competition between Atlanta and Sydney I am very happy with my 2 gold, 1 silver, 1 World Record and 1 Paralympic Record.
