Jessica-Jane Applegate MBE
''Competing at a home games has to be a once in a lifetime experience, so qualifying for the London 2012 Paralympic Games at 15 years old was just incredible, but winning Gold in front of a 17,500 home crowd is something that I will never forget, it was just amazing! Being honoured with an MBE at 16 years old was pretty awesome too!
I believe I can and will do better, so I have set new tougher goals for the Paralympics in Tokyo 2020, and I am working really hard to achieve these."
Jessica-Jane will be competing in the European Championships 2018 in Dublin, Ireland in August, with highlights of all of the events showing on Channel 4.
