Hannah Cockroft MBE Hannah is a Paralympic wheelchair racer, representing GB in the T34 category and is the reigning World, European and Paralympic Champion. Two cardiac arrests shortly after she was born resulted in damage to two areas of Hannah’s brain and left her with deformity to her legs and feet, weakened hips and also with damage to her fine motor skills. Hannah discovered sport at senior school and started out playing wheelchair basketball. Her racing talent was finally harnessed when Hannah was fifteen. Hannah now has an impressive medal collection for her racing and currently holds the T34 World Records for 100, 200, 400 and 800m. Hannah took a break from her University studies to train for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games, where she won three Gold medals, breaking one of her own world records in the process. Hannah is patron of several charities and actively campaigns on disability issues and was awarded an MBE by The Queen in 2013. Hannah is both a passionate and effective motivational and inspirational speaker.
