Today marks one year to go until the postponed Tokyo Paralympics, and, as an official sponsor of the British Paralympic Association, we’re delighted to be supporting our athletes on their journey in the run up to the Games.
As a business committed to creating an inclusive workplace environment and culture, and one that values the diversity of individual talents, our partnership with ParaGB is something we’re incredibly proud of.
To celebrate one year to go, we’re starting by shining the spotlight on our friend and athletic hero David Weir, six times Paralympic champion, who we’re backing all the way to 2021.
David made his Paralympic debut at Atlanta in 1996 and is regarded as one of the most successful and celebrated para-athletes in the history of the sport. He has since gone on to win ten Paralympic medals - including those six golds.
The Arsenal fan’s (good choice of team, we built the Emirates Stadium!) crowning moment came on home soil at London 2012, where he powered through a gruelling schedule of seven races in 10 days to win four gold medals.
David took some time out of his busy training schedule before lockdown to record this message.
