Peter is President of the Rushmoor Mallards Disability Sports Club, where he started his training for the Paralympics. He started swimming at the age of five for physiotherapy. He swam in his first gala in the summer of 1975 at the BSAD (British Sports Association for the Disabled) National Championships at Stoke Mandeville. It was a gold for the 50m backstroke and the start of a journey that would take him around the country, and world, swimming for school, club and country. The pinnacle of his career was being selected to represent his country at the 1988 and 1992 Paralympics. His highest achievement is 3 Golds in Barcelona.
