In the 80’s when Scottish athletes with cerebral palsy were making their mark in International sport, Maxwell was up there with the very best.

Maxwell started his swimming training at Cardenden Swimming Club and was introduced to disability sport by his physical education teacher. Maxwell was selected for the Great Britain team for the Paralympic Games in New York in 1984.

A silver medal in the 50 metres backstroke was his reward for a lifetime commitment to swimming. It was a performance at the time that had British spectators on their feet. Maxwell will always be remembered as a “real character” in Scottish and British teams.

Maxwell will also be remembered for the skill and technique he demonstrated as a backstroke swimmer
