All eyes are set for this year’s Tokyo Paralympic Games as competitions begin from 24 August to 5 September 2021. As an Official Supporter of the Australian Paralympic Team, NDSP Plan Managers continues its mission of championing the goals and aspirations of people with disability.
For the entire Tokyo Paralympic Games, NDSP teams up with 23-year-old Paralympian, Brodie Smith, who will be making her Paralympic debut in the sport of goalball.
As the highest scorer in the 2017 World Youth Championships, Brodie led her team to win a gold medal in Hungary. She is now part of The Aussie Belles and is dubbed the “rookie-to-watch.”
Join NDSP in an exclusive social media diary (#BrodieTakesOnTokyo) and follow Brodie’s exciting journey as she travels to Tokyo and competes for the Paralympic Games. NDSP will be sharing Brodie’s photos and videos through our Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages.
Born on 08 August 1998, Brodie is based in Maitland, NSW, and is currently studying Secondary Education at Newcastle University.
Here are more fun facts we have learned about her:
She loves her family and friends…
She’s a dog lover…
She loves travelling…
She’s a big foodie…
And most importantly… she’s a Harry Potter fan!

Invented in 1946 primarily as a rehabilitation sport for vision impaired war veterans, goalball officially became a Paralympic sport back in 1980. The sport is exclusively played by athletes with vision impairment.
