Gareth Ho Jing Rui
- Event(s)BC3 Individual Male (ACP - Low Siew Kay)
Gareth Ho developed interest and played recreational boccia when he was in Secondary Two. In 2015, together with the MDAS Boccia Team, he attended the ASEAN Para Games 2015 held in Singapore and cheered on the Singapore boccia team. That proved to be the spark for his interest in boccia. In that same year, Gareth participated in a national competition for the first time and won bronze in the competition with his teammate. Since then, Gareth made considerable progress and was selected to represent Singapore at the BISFed 2018 Chinese Taipei Boccia Regional Open competition. Most recently, together with his ACP Loh Siew Kay, Gareth achieved a respectable 9th place at the BISFed 2019 Dubai Boccia Regional Open in the BC3 (individual) category.
I was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) at the age of 4. I am a BC3 Boccia player. I am a Chelsea fan since he was 11 years old.
His personal philosophy: Dont let dreams be dreams, just do it.
