Congratulations Eleanor Simmonds!

December 14, 2008

Teenage Paralympic swimmer Eleanor Simmonds, who was born with dwarfism, became Britain’s youngest ever individual Paralympic gold medallist at the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing. Now, she has been rewarded for her amazing achievement with the BBC Young Sports Personality Of The Year Award. It is great to see a well and truly DisAbled person winning such a mainstream award. This is true progress and true inclusion. Of course, Eleanor Simmonds has my congratulations and best wishes in and out of the water.
