AFTER FSGT Tony Benfer lost his
lower right leg in a hit-and-run accident
in Townsville in 2007, he never thought
he would live a normal life again, let
alone win a brace of gold medals in
competitive sports competitions.
But the seemingly impossible
for FSGT Benfer became possible
through the Joint Health Command's
ADF Paralympic Sports Program
(ADFPSP), which is instrumental
to the rehabilitation and recovery of
wounded and injured ADF personnel.
The ADFPSP catapulted FSGT
Benfer to a swag of triumphs in the
swimming pool at the US Marine
Corps' Paralympic Trials from
February 12 to 23.
He won gold medals in the 50m
freestyle, 100m freestyle and 50m
backstroke and a silver in the 4x50m
open freestyle relay.
FSGT Benfer, who also won three
gold medals at the trials last year and
broke his own records in all three
events, was one of seven injured or
wounded ADF personnel to compete.
Between them they won 14 gold
medals, three silvers and two bronzes.
