International Day for Persons with Disabilities

2nd Dec, 2020

3rd December is INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES I would like to encourage more people with disabilities to take up sport especially young people during lockdown to keep active.

Be proud of who you are no matter how much time you need to achieve how slow you're progressing you step possible

I am thrilled that I have been selected to the world class programme this rare opportunity made me feel proud that I have chance to represent great Britain in the future Paralympics. I realised this opportunity come with hard work and responsibility which I will endeavour to achieve.

Training during lockdown hasn't effected me much because I am on the approved athlete list to train at the track twice a week instead of my local car park but I still train everyday at home.
