THE PEOPLE WHO HELP TO MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN
Every penny and every pound, from my sponsors and donors, has helped me to be successful. Working with great companies has been a learning experience and I hope all who shared in my journey and watched me racing at high speed on TV has been able to take positives from it.
Although finishing 4th was frustrating, I was delighted to win 6 World Cup medals last winter. My achievements are a win over adversity and disability that everyone can share in.
I would not be here, striving to be the best I can be, if it wasn’t for the support of my sponsors.
So from Dr Ito in Yamagata hospital, Japan, who first suggested I compete in the Paralympics; to my husband, my family, friends, team and supporters, thank you all for backing me.
