Simon Lawson

Lawson is coached by Ian Thompson who trained and is married to legendary Paralympic athlete Tanni Grey-Thompson. His results on the road last autumn were encouraging with a second place finish behind David Weir at the Great North Run as well as fifth place at the Berlin Marathon.

He was 10th in the IPC World Cup event at the London Marathon earlier this year and has been sharpening up over the shorter distances in recent months, winning the Great Manchester 10km in May. It will be the 34 year-old’s first Paralympic Games in Rio.
