"One of Great Britain's Best Paralympians"Add to my shortlist
Jonnie continued his unbelievable success into 2017 by winning GOLD in the World-Para Athletics Championships. He was only five years old when he contracted Meningitis, which resulted in an amputation just below the knee. After a remarkable recovery, and with the fighting spirit which would eventually help him to become a world-class sprinter, Jonnie made a full recovery from the disease. Even after his illness, Jonnie would still try to compete against able-bodied children in school races, determined that his disability would not stop him. After years of training and learning his trade at regional events, it was in 2012 that Jonnie competed in his first international race at the Paralympic World Cup in Manchester, later he broke the World Record and won Gold, making it a year to remember.
