Sprinter Richard Whitehead won his first world title at 35 at the World Championships in Christchurch and that title was quickly followed by European and Paralympic gold in 2012.
Whitehad then went on to retain his world title in 2013, before embarking on a charity expedition, which saw him run 40 marathons in 40 days and, in doing so, becoming the first double leg amputee to run the length of the country.
In 2016 he claimed 100m and 200m at the European Championships before going to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games where he won 200m gold and 100m silver.
A year later he returned to the Olympic Stadium in London where he won World Championship gold and bronze.
