We were lucky enough to talk to Jonnie Peacock and hear what he enjoyed most about being part of a club as a young athlete. Jonnie won gold at the 2012 Summer Paralympics and 2016 Summer Paralympics, representing Great Britain in the T44 men’s 100 metres event.
He explained to us the important role that his club played in encouraging and supporting him to become the incredible Paralympian that he is today. He discussed what he thinks are the most significant factors that make a good club and the main elements that he enjoyed from being part of a club.
Since having his right leg amputated below the knee when he was five, Jonnie understands first-hand the impact that clubs can have by creating more inclusive environments for everyone that wants to get involved.
