Taverners ambassadors doing Team GB proud
We’ve reached the halfway point of the 2012 Paralympics and Great Britain have made a great start to the games with the Taverners Paralympic ambassadors contributing no fewer than 4 medals already with the potential for more to come.
Ellie Simmonds has already won 2 gold medals whilst breaking numerous world records on the way and Mickey Bushell, who received his first racing wheelchair from The Lady Taverners in 2004, took the 100m T53 Gold in front of full house at the Olympic Stadium. Both still have the chance to add to their medal tally later this week.
Table Tennis player Will Bayley took a superb Silver medal in the Class 7 final but unfortunately Ross Wilson just missed out on Table Tennis Bronze.
Amy Conroy, Judith Hamer, Maddie Thompson and Laurie Williams are part of the Team GB Women’s Wheelchair Basketball team that takes on Germany in tonights quarter-final and Jordanne Whiley has made it into the Wheelchair Tennis Women’s doubles quarter-finals against the Germans. Louise Hunt, however, was unfortunate to go out in the Wheelchair Tennis singles competition in the last 32.
Good luck to all our inspirational ambassadors and Team GB Paralympic athletes for the remainder of the games.
