We are so proud of our young Bader Grant Recipient of the Month, Thomas Talbot, who has just returned from a wonderfully successful time at the Cerebral Palsy World Games in Spain.
Thomas’s International Classification changed from an RR3 to an RR2 resulting in him racing in 7 races with heats and finals rather than the 4 he was anticipating.
He had an amazing week, finishing the Games as GB No. 1 RR2 Male; World Silver Medalist for 800m; ran a personal best in the 100m and came in 4th in the 200m and 400m. This was an incredible achievement by this very talented young athlete who has a determination and work ethic that is an inspiration to all.
Thankfully Thomas was also able to enjoy time with friends both old and new while there and, most of all, was incredibly proud to have been able to represent his country in the sport he loves. It may be the first time he’s done this but we wouldn’t mind betting that it won’t be the last…!
Huge congratulations, Thomas. We know that these achievements couldn’t be more deserved.
