Devon Briggs | Sport2022
My name is Devon Briggs, I am currently in my last year at Cambridge High School with ambitions to study accounting next year at the University of Waikato. I started cycling as a recovery exercise in 2014 after my surgeries, it then evolved into something much more for me, I did a “have a go session” on the track when I was 10 years old and have been hooked ever since.
To me cycling is more than just a sport, it’s something I love to do and am passionate about and will most likely continue it for the rest of my life. I am an outgoing person who will give everything a go and give it my all, through everything I do I never let my disability hold me back, if there is something I can’t do I will always find another way of doing it.
My aim over the next couple of years is to compete at the 2022 Para track and road worlds as well as represent New Zealand at the 2024 Paralympics in France both on the track and road.
