Published on: 4th May, 2021

Here are brother and sister Libby and Stephen Clegg talking about their Tokyo aims this summer.

Libby and her guide runner Chris Clarke won double gold in Rio in 2016 on the track. Stephen made 2 finals in the same games. Their brother James won a medal in London.

The family has a deteriorating eye condition called Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy.

Libby goes to this games as a mum - with young Edward just turned two.

And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
