Biography

Victoria flag
I. Speed was born in Victoria, Australia

I am Australian. I was born in Kerang, a small town in the wheat belt of Victoria, about 3 hours’ drive north-west of Melbourne.

I grew up in Melbourne, not far from the Riversdale Golf Club where my father worked as a golf pro. I come from a family of golfers. My parents met on the golf course. All of my grandparents were avid golfers. My great-grandfather was a member of Royal Melbourne Golf Club, and my great-great-uncle won the Australian Amateur golf championship.

I. Speed is a Paralympian. He represented Australia at the 2008 Paralympic Games.

It might sound strange, but I don’t play golf. I run. I represented Australia at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics, competing in the 800m at the Bird’s Nest. And, no, I didn’t win a medal. I came 9th overall.
