She won 2 Gold medals in London 2012, 3 Gold medals in Rio 2016 in the T34 category and is looking to repeat her success in Tokyo 2020.

Showing her appreciation, Cockroft commented: “It’s great to have Invacare’s support going into my fifth World Championships. We made some reasonably big changes in the positioning of the new chair, which has made huge differences in my speeds and hopefully will have a positive impact on my times once we get on the track.”

She added: “I’m really lucky to have the expertise of the team to help get these changes right and make sure they complement the training I do to be the best in the World.”

Invacare has sponsored Cockroft since 2014, detailing how it recognises her sheer determination and positive ethics.

Mike Farrell, managing director at Invacare, said: “We are extremely pleased to support world‐class Paralympian Hannah and to help achieve her ambitions. She is an inspiration to so many people and we are very proud to be a part of Hannah’s success.”

Cockroft will be representing Great Britain in the World Championships in Dubai from November 7-15 and is working her way to the Paralympics in Tokyo 2020.
