WATCH Danielle Brown win gold at London 2012

 

 

Danielle Brown made history as the first ever disabled athlete to represent Team England at the Commonwealth Games in a non-disabled event, where she won gold in the women’s Team Compound.

 

She has been competing in the sport since the age of 15 and Get Kids Going! paid for a new wheelchair for Danielle at a stage when her previous chair was so old that according to her she was “pushing around on one arm!”

 

Danielle said, “The prices are astronomical and that without the massive support of Get Kids Going!, financing my new equipment would have been a struggle.”
