23 Year Old Becomes World’s Youngest GrandfatherMarch 4, 2019
Tommy Connolly was a college student at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. His life was that of a fairly typical 23-year-old: school, part-time job, sports, friends. But that all changed one day in 2015, when a fateful Facebook message would turn his life upside down.
A Rising Sports Star
Tommy was a decorated athlete, and not just at college level. While he was on the Track and Field team at his university, he also participated in competitions outside of school. He was a talented runner, and dreamed of one day racing in national and perhaps even international championships. Little did he know that he’d soon have to put his athletic career on hold.
