Recently retired Tanni Grey-Thompson is now a Gamechangers judge. She’s Britain’s greatest ever paralympic athlete.
In the below video, she talks about her career and how her wheelchair gave her the freedom to do what she wanted.
According to Gamechangers, away from the track, Grey-Thompson has played an active role in administration. She is the Vice-President of the Women’s Sports Foundation, a member of the United Kingdom Sports Council, a patron of the British Sports Trust and she was a member of the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee. Her latest appointment is with UK Athletics to help identify Britain’s paralympic stars of the future. In 2003 she was awarded the Freedom of the City of Cardiff. In 2005 she was created ‘Dame’ Tanni Grey-Thompson for her services to sport.
Tanni is Vice Chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.
By the way, I loved this picture of her. When I saw it, I had to include it.
Thanks for all you’ve done Tanni. You’re a true inspiration.
