Born and raised in South Wales, Bush became Britain’s first ever male Para taekwondo athlete to win a World Championships in 2019.

The former Brazilian Jujitsu fighter seized the opportunity to switch to the sport in 2017 after realising it had joined the Paralympic roster - and he hasn’t looked back since.

Bush has medalled at a number of events including the Oceania Para Taekwondo Championships as well as the Pan America Taekwondo Open.

During the pandemic, the heavyweight fighter also served as a key worker and helped to supply food to local shops in his hometown of St Clears, Carmarthenshire.
