"Our Story" text


Nick & Delphine Watson founded Team AngelWolf in 2014 in a move to reverse the prospects for their son Rio. Born with a chromosome disorder so rare that it affects only a handful of people worldwide – 1q44 deletion denovo syndrome – Rio’s chances for independence and participating in sport were set at almost zero, which was a barrier that the family were determined to overcome.

  • Team AngelWolf is inspired by the Watson children, Rio (our Angel) & Tia (Little Wolf).

  • The family were blessed and fortunate to discover Rio’s passion in life - inclusive racing!

  • This brought a wonderful opportunity of family togetherness, as a whole, father-son and brother-sister.

  • Rio & Tia have always been a team, with a beautiful, special bond.

  • This lead to an awakening and need to create a more inclusive community, for Rio and others, which lead to the creation of Team AngelWolf: Impact Talks and Community Inclusive Activities.

  • It is this spirit we want to share with the world, extending the invite for everyone to join our our ‘WolfPack’.
