Paralympic ones to watch for 2015

Paralympic ones to watch for 2015
paralympic-ones-to-watch-for-2015


With the Rio Paralympics only 20 months away, 2015 promises to be another http://www.cardinalsnflofficialprostore.com/CARDINALS-TROY-NIKLAS-JERSEY busy year for disability sport. Among the big events in 2015 are World Championships in athletics, rowing, plus track and road cycling. There will also be major events on home soil, including the World Swimming Championships in Glasgow and the European Wheelchair Basketball Championships in Worcester. BBC Sport takes a look at some of the competitors who will be hoping to make an impact in their respective sports. Maria Lyle (Athletics) 2015 focus: IPC World Championships, Doha (22-30 October) Scottish teenager Maria Lyle is one of a host of talented youngsters who are making an impact on the GB Paralympic athletics team. The 14-year-old, who was the youngest member of the GB team, landed double gold in the T35 100m and 200m events at the IPC European Athletics Championships in Swansea. Lyle, who has cerebral palsy, began athletics when she was eight and, although she achieved the qualifying times for London 2012, was too young to compete. She started 2014 with a 200m world record in her first major international event in Dubai and now holds the 100 and 200m bests. However, the third-year pupil at Dunbar Grammar Kareem Martin Authentic Jersey School is not resting on her laurels. She is working on improving her core strength and technique in 2015 along with coach Tabo Huntley, whom she visits every fortnight. Having won the British Athletics Young Paralympic Athlete of the Year, Lyle is one of a host of talented teenagers who will be hoping to make an impact at the Worlds in Doha in October - the last major international championship before Rio. She says: "I sometimes have to pinch myself at what I have achieved in 2014. It has been so nice to have the support from British Athletics and my family to help me become a better athlete but I want to keep improving." Alice Tai (Swimming) 2015 focus: IPC Swimming World Championships, Glasgow (13-19 July) Tai anchored the women's freestyle relay squad to gold at the IPC European Championships in Eindhoven in August, having already won silver in the S10 100m backstroke and bronze in the 400m freestyle. With her turning 16 in January, Tai is the youngest member of the British Swimming Podium programme. And 2015 will be a busy year, with 10 GCSEs for her to sit at Bournemouth Collegiate School, before she hopes to take part in July's World Championships in Glasgow. Tai has club foot and has undergone a series of operations to try to correct the problem. She took up swimming as a youngster, wanting to get strength back in her legs after various procedures. In October 2010, Tai realised she could be classified to compete in Paralympic competition and she now holds a number of British records. Although she missed out on selection for London 2012, she got a sense of the big occasion when she took part in the Olympic torch relay at Blandford Forum in Dorset - and also saw Ellie Simmonds win 400m gold in London. There is sibling rivalry in her training http://www.cardinalsnflofficialprostore.com/CARDINALS-ANTONIO-CROMARTIE-JERSEY regime in Bournemouth, where she works alongside her 13-year-old brother, Christian, who is part of England's able-bodied talent programme. She says: "To compete in a World Championships on home soil would be amazing. I watched the Commonwealth Games and the atmosphere within the pool was incredible. Hopefully that can be recreated and we can experience it first hand."
