Tanni Grey-Thompson – a Paralympic legend

As London gears up for the Olympics – with less than 75 days to go – it will be a real treat to see Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson tomorrow.

The UK’s most successful Paralympic athlete of all time, Tanni has won 11 gold Paralympic medals since 1992. Not only is Tanni incredibly talented at what she does on the track, she’s also hugely engaging and inspirational off the track. She’s been very involved in London’s preparations for 2012, having been part of the original bid’s committee and now on the main organising committee. Tanni has many wonderful anecdotes about the past seven years as the ideas turned into reality. It will be fascinating to hear her insights so close to the run-up to the Opening Ceremony in July.
