Paralympic champion: 'I don't want our hopes to die in this country'

It came from an idea that me and Jenny had years ago. When I was in Beijing (for the 2008 Olympics) I was thinking about our squad and looking at the other nations. I thought if no one's going to do something I think I should do, and help the next generation as I don't want our hopes to die in this country - I knew I was getting a little bit older. I'm glad that we've not just stuck with wheelchair racing, we've got other sports involved too, although it's mostly athletics.
