Delighted to learn of three local Hornsey & Wood Green athletes who have been selected for the Olympics and Paralympics. Congratulations and good luck.
Sitting volleyball player Rob Richardson who lives in Wood Green and will be competing at his first Paralympics. Indeed London 2012 will be the first time ever that Great Britain will have Sitting Volleyball teams represented at the Games.
Basketball player Azania Stewart who also lives in Wood Green and will be competing at her first Olympics. As with sitting volleyball, London 2012 will be the first time ever that Great Britain will have a women’s basketball team represented at the Games.
Track and field athlete Steve Lewis who lives in Muswell Hill, will be competing at his second successive Olympics in the Pole Vault, having made his debut in Beijing four years ago.
