David Weir, CBE

Paralympic athlete

Having won four gold medals in London 2012, the magnificent David Weir has become a trailblazer for Paralympic sport in the UK. He was born with a spinal cord transection that left him unable to use his legs, and while at school he became frustrated by the lack of sport on offer to wheelchair users. In 2013, he launched the Weir Archer Academy which is designed to increase participation in Paralympic sport. As a regular competitor in the London Marathon, Weir has won the race a record-equalling six times. In 2013, Weir was awarded a CBE in the New Year’s Honours list.
