Emma Wiggs is part of the paracanoe team training for the Tokyo Olympics. This is an excerpt from a video Emma and I made for British Canoeing this week. You can see the whole video on British Canoeing's Facebook page https://fb.watch/4akkfKtV2H/
Emma talks about her journey to the Gold medal in Rio which began when a mystery virus left her paralysed overnight as a teenager.
She trained as a PE Teacher and eventually got involved with paralympic sport....starting with sitting volleyball at London 2012.
It's a really inspiring talk and Emma is a very gifted speaker.
Hope you enjoy it!
