Meeting a Paralympic champion

October 19, 2016


I was honoured to meet Paralympic swimmer Matt Wylie today while he was visiting Westminster with his Gold medal from Rio 2016. Matt won the S9 50 metres freestyle on day six of the Games, in a time of 25.95 seconds. Matt, from Washington, Tyne and Wear, is only 20, and is looking forward to the 2020 Paralympic Games in Japan.
