Antonia ‘Toni’ Bunyan
When and how did you get involved in goalball?
I tried goalball for the first time in 2011 at my junior school. I then joined York St Johns Goalball club every Saturday.
I went to my first international tournament at the age of 15 and scored my first goal too! I was selected for World Qualifiers in USA and competed and came 3rd at the Youth World Championships in 2019 in Australia. I’ve also been shortlisted for the Top 10 Sports Aid One to Watch Award.
What are your ambitions in the sport?
I would like to qualify for the Paralympics.
Do you have one piece of advice for an aspiring athlete?
Be brave with everything you do. Anything can be achieved if you work hard and be open to new things.
