Best Wishes to our Paralympic Athletes!

Each putting their sport on the map…Again!

After the success of the Olympics, our summer of sport continues with the Paralympics launching in Tokyo this week.

I love the competition, the stories and team coming together throughout these weeks we are witnessing. I was massively inspired in 2012 & 2016 after these events, to try new things, to have a go and see how far I could push my body, to figure how to adapt to different sports and I credit a large amount of that to our athletes from both games for giving me that push…

Yes, I’ve documented my journey in bodybuilding but I’ve also taken on the Newport Velodrome where our Para athletes had been training before Rio. Check out the pics below…it is impressively steep!! PS THE BIKES ALSO HAVE NO BRAKES!!

Anyway, here’s to more adventure, success and enjoyment for all our athletes out in Japan!

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
