Story

#HandcyclingTriathlete

Hi, I am the current Ironman Handcycle World Champion and course record holder over the Ironman distance, having competed in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii last October in the Physically Challenged Division.

Now I am aiming to compete at the Tokyo Paralympics next year in Paratriathlon, which is a Sprint distance of 750m swim/20km hand bike/5km 'run' using a racing wheelchair.

In order to achieve my goal of becoming a Paralympic Medallist, I require a new custom racing wheelchair frame which will be made in America at Carbonbikes.usa. My old chair is no longer a good fit and over six years old.

A new frame will help me to train harder, compete better, and ultimately win-I hope! The cost of the new custom frame is £2633. As an entirely self-funded athlete, I am kindly asking for your help.

Whether by sharing my fundraising page or making a donation, you will be helping me get one step closer to achieving my dreams. Any donation, large or small will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

    Super excited to receive a £800 donation from Mablethorpe Running Club today, to help towards the cost of a replacement racing chair! They decided to split the proceeds of their annual East Coast Classic 10k between myself and our local RNLI Lifeboat Station at Mablethorpe. Thank you to everyone who organises, runs and supports the race for your help on my Road to Tokyo!

    Hi everyone, thought I'd show you my 'pain cave' set up for when I do intervals. I have a set of steel rollers in my garage, which the racing wheelchair is fixed to at the front and rear. My drink bottle is suspended below the chassis and I have a tube running up the right hand side of the frame. My hard race gloves are hanging from the steering compensator, but since all my racing is on the road, I steer using the handles to the left of the picture and the brake is on the right. I find rock music gets me through my hard workouts!
