Congratulations GB Paralympics!
The whole team at GiveToLocal, along with the entire nation have been captivated and inspired over the past two weeks by the performances of our incredible Paralympians.
Paralympics GB made history once again at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games after a phenomenal medal haul which saw the team reach the podium in more sports than any other nation at a single Games.
For the very first time, the British team won medals across 18 sports and finished an incredible second in the medal table behind China with 124 medals overall, including 41 gold, 38 silver and 45 bronze.
Particular mention for the standout and history making performances by Dame Sarah Storey who became Great Britain’s most successful Paralympian of all time, winning three events to reach 17 golds in a stunning career that isn’t over yet!
Neil Gardiner, Chief Executive at GiveToLocal reflected that “Many of these athletes have had to overcome the most extraordinary difficulties, including in many instances funding themselves so they have the chance to represent their country and compete at the highest level. They are truly incredible and their efforts will continue to inspire not only the next generation of Paralympians, but all of us as well.”
