At the age of 18, Thomas Young burst onto the scene winning double gold in the T38 100m and 200m at the 2018 European Championships in Berlin. At his Paralympic Games debut in Tokyo 2020 he claimed gold, running 10.94 seconds in the T38 100m final, at just 21 years of age.

Still in his early 20s, Thomas is now focused on the next Paralympic Games in Paris 2024.  

Join us at this free online talk, where Thomas will explain to students how he undertook to improve his understanding of his impairment, which meant he couldn’t ride a bike, whilst navigating his aspirations to train and compete at the highest level. Discover how Thomas is targeting his training and his life style, to achieve the grand slam of Paralympic, World, European and Commonwealth titles. 

We will be joined by BSL interpreter Sarah Hobbs for this event.
