At the age of 28, Elliot was living a ‘normal’ life, married with three kids and studying for a degree, when he noticed his sight was starting to deteriorate. Initially he put it down to ‘getting older’ but after three months the amount of vision he had lost was quite considerable.

Diagnosed with keratoconus – a condition that causes the cornea to weaken, Elliot’s family rallied together to fund an operation to save what sight he had remaining.

Following the diagnosis Elliot lost his job teaching judo in local schools as he could no longer drive.

However, following the operation Elliot’s dad, 1988 Seoul Olympic judo bronze medallist, Dennis, suggested he try competing as a visually impaired judoka with the British Judo VI team.

World and European championship bronze medals followed, and Elliot is currently ranked 5th in the world.
