VIS TV Road to Rio - Episode 4

Monday, 02 November 2015

VIS table tennis player Melissa Tapper is seeking to become the first Australian to compete at both an Olympics and a Paralympics in Rio de Janerio next year.

Having finished a frustrating fourth in singles at the 2012 London Paralympics, Tapper says she is "working towards a gold in the Paras" in Rio.

But, before that, the VIS athlete's dream is of a debut among the "able-bods" at the Olympic Games, where just to qualify and compete at her very best would almost be reward enough.
