We look forward to seeing you there!
We are excited to host a special guest at this year’s seminar - Olympic champion and Sunrise Ambassador David Wagner. He will share his inspirational story of overcoming the odds and becoming a world champion wheelchair tennis player. David is ranked #2 in the world in Quad singles and #1 in Quad doubles, based on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) rankings. David has competed in 4 Paralympic Games winning 8 medals including gold. He is also a 19 time wheelchair tennis Grand Slam winner.
David lost his ability to walk due to an accident at the beach in California in 1995. The result of the accident was a broken neck which damaged his spinal cord leaving him a C6 quadriplegic. While in rehab, David regained his love for tennis, learned of the opportunity to compete, and started to train again. With his hand taped to the racket, he set out to become the number one Quad Open player in the world.
At the moment, David is a full time wheelchair tennis player and travels all over the world. He plays 15-20 tournaments a year including the Grand Slam tennis events. His next goal is to participate at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020 and to win 2 gold medals - both singles and doubles.
David will share his unique story during the seminar lunch hour. He will also be available throughout the day to meet and take photographs. Learn more about David at his website http://www.davidwagner.us/ or follow him on Twitter @wagnertennis or Facebook @wheelchairtennis.
