Scooter - who was born with a rare form of dwarfism called diastrophic dysplasia, got his nickname from scooting around on his tricyle, and by the age of 12, was already dreaming of representing Australia at the Paralympics.
By the looks of this video I found from a few years back, this guy isn't afraid of anything!
Good Luck Scooter!
