Abstract: Ask anyone who knows me – losing is not in my dictionary,’ para swimmer Julian Bajada smiles. Various twists and turns in his life have only inspired him to take up new sporting challenges. Born with a rare condition affecting his limbs, teen Bajada couldn’t resist playing football with his mates between numerous surgeries. When he grew up to become a lawyer and athlete, he completed the Gozo-to-Malta challenge (a 6km swim) as a member of the National Maltese Para- Swimming Team, and took up rowing when he studied in Cambridge. His story resonates with those of numerous local and international parathletes, who juggle professional ambitions with demanding training schedules.
