Graeme Ballard

Often nicknamed Graeme ‘Bullet’ Ballard for his trademark fast start out of the blocks, Graeme has become an ever-present member of GB teams. Now aged 37, his first major medal came at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, the first of two medals at the biggest competition in the sport.

After missing out on the medals in Doha at the worlds in 2015, the Chorley-based athlete won double silver at the Europeans in June. Now coached by Trevor Painter and training in the same group as Olympian Jenny Meadows, Ballard will be hoping for more success at his fourth Paralympic Games.
