Curtis McGrath Books & Biography


It's hard to imagine a greater challenge than serving on the front lines in Afghanistan. But overcoming adversity has become a defining characteristic not just of Curtis McGrath's career with the Australian Defence Force, but of his life. McGrath was hit by a mine blast on duty and subsequently lost both his legs. But even that could not hold him back. He has since become one of the country's most successful Paralympic athletes, winning Gold as a canoeist in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, and becoming an ambassador for the 2018 Invictus Games.

Curtis is now a ten-time world champion gold medallist, with two more Paralympic gold medals from Tokyo to add to his collection. His life is a lesson in not just how to face setbacks, but triumph over them. He lives on the Gold Coast with his wife, Rachel, an ICU doctor.
