Good Sport Sammi's Tips For Success

Champion wheelchair racer Sammi Kinghorn is no stranger to facing challenges – and has been a big success in the sport.

The 22-year-old Scot was left paralysed below the waist in an accident almost eight years ago, but is now the fastest-ever female British female racer over several sprint distances. Her last challenge was to compete over marathon distance and in the recent Gold Coast Commonwealth Games she finished fourth in both events she took part in.

Now Sammi has a blog designed to help others achieve their goals, with tips including doing your research beforehand and staying mentally strong.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
