Yesterday we received confirmation that Bablake pupil Kare Adenegan has been selected for the Paralympics GB team that will fly out to Rio later this summer.
Kare has been selected for the T34 100m, 400m and 800m events after impressing selectors over the last few years. Her achievement is a remarkable story of determination, courage and immense belief in her ability to aim for the very best in her sport. She will also go into the paralympics on the back of a 100m personal best in the recent Muller Anniversary Games in London.
We now wish Kare all the very best with her final preparations for Rio; this will surely be the time of her life and we trust she will savour and enjoy every moment. The whole of Bablake will be watching eagerly to see how she performs at the games, but she is already a winner in everyone's eyes for achieving her Olympic dream so soon after taking up wheelchair racing.
Last week the Coventry Telegraph posted a super article celebrating all the local companies who have supported Kare and her family over the last few years in her bid to take on the best in the world. We are sure Kare will do Bablake and her city proud later this year at the Paralympics. She is an inspiration to all of us!
