My story

[p]A long, long time ago British Blind Sports came to my school and introduced me to swimming. With their help l learnt to love the sport and to see that anything could be possible. So I trained and trained, attended competitions and camps organised by them, and began to win races. I went on to become European, World and Paralympic Champion. I never would have had these amazing, truly life changing experiences without British Blind Sport. I want to raise as much as possible to give something back to a charity that has given me so much. Please please sponsor me to help encourage more blind and visually impaired people into sport... and to find the next Paralympic Champion! [/p]
