We were all inspired earlier this month by Ben’s presentation at our meeting this month. we thought you would like to know this breaking news. Our Ben is putting Shropshire on the map and should be very proud with the latest news He has received.
Ben has now taken a leap towards his goal of competing at Rio 2016 Paralympic Games after winning a place on an elite training programme!
Ben is going to be training with some of the best disabled athletes in the UK after being selected to take part in UK Sport’s World Class Performance Training Programme which has around 90 athletes taking part.
Ben is somewhat shocked by this call up which has come 12 months earlier than he anticipated.
In 2014 He is already competing in the Swiss Open in Switzerland in May as well as the World Junior finals at Stoke Mandeville in July and the European Championships in Swansea also in July
Ruby has sent a message of congratulations to Ben from SDN. I hope we can follow his progress. My words at the meeting ” Ben is going places” appear to be on target.
