Paralympian and TV presenter Steve Brown, who led the GB Wheelchair Rugby team to the 2012 Olympics, shared his inspiring story during a special visit to Lewes Old Grammar School (LOGS).
In his role as the school’s new athlete mentor, Steve met senior students at the school on Tuesday, September 22. He will return later this year to run a project day for gifted and talented pupils in PE/Games.
The Sky Sports presenter, best known for his work on the Saturday morning TV show Game Changers, was recently voted on to the 2015 Power list of 100 most influential people in Britain with a disability.
Paralysed in a fall at the age of 24, Steve adopted wheelchair rugby, widely known as murderball, as the toughest mental and physical challenge he could find in sport and life.
A LOGS spokesperson said: “Steve has been an athlete mentor for several years, using his own personal journey to inspire others. We are thrilled to have him as a personal athlete mentor.”
