A talented teenage sprinter, Ben collected his first major international medal on the world stage by winning bronze over 200m at the Assen 2006 IPC Athletics World Championships. His achievement was all the more remarkable as just two days before the event he had suffered the disappointment of being disqualified on a technicality from the final of the T36 100m. He continued the theme of succeeding in the face of adversity when winning silver in the 100m in Beijing, despite running with a broken bone in his foot. Aftyer winning Paralympic World Cup gold over 100m in 2009 he went to the IPC Athletic Championships in Christchurch in 2011 and came home with a silver medal over 100m and a bronze over 200m.

He also used to collect fossils and also enjoys walking and camping.
