ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Jamie, an adaptive athlete from Basingstoke, Hampshire. After developing a chronic pain condition, I made the difficult decision to undergo a below-knee amputation. I learnt to walk in June 2017 after 14 years in a wheelchair and started running in January 2018 while using a running blade. I compete internationally for Judo as the only lower-limb amputee to compete. I compete without my prosthesis against those with two legs so it's certainly a challenge!

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

Silver medal at the World Judo Games 2019, 3rd place at the World OCR Championships (able-bodied) and a Gold Medal at the Spartan World Para Elite Championships.
