Tim Prendergast has been a member of Wellington Scottish for many years. However, newer members to the club may not know him as he now lives in England and is one of our overseas based members.
Tim's vision began depleting as a child and he now has about 5 percent of normal vision. He has represented New Zealand at four Paralympics including Sydney 200 where he won silver medals in the T13 800m and T13 1500m, and Athens 2004 where he won a gold medal in the T13 800m.
He will run his third London Marathon this weekend. His best marathon time is 2:46.
You can track Tim live at the London Marathon results website
