Armatherm™ has sponsored a Leeds wheelchair racer who has been selected to represent Great Britain in the 2018 European Championships in Berlin.
After stepping on a sea urchin on holiday in 2012, talented sportsman, Callum Hall, became paralysed from the waist down. Since then, he has channelled his passion and love of sports and taken his interests to the next level, by competing in major sporting events such as the 2018 commonwealth games.
Following his selection for the European championships in Berlin, Armatherm™ has sponsored Callum to fund a brand-new race chair. As wheelchair racing is an equipment based sport this piece of kit will help Callum perform at a top level, which was seen during the 2018 commonwealth games where the chair helped him to race well throughout the challenge.
Commenting on the support he has received from Armatherm™, Callum, said: “I cannot thank Armatherm™ enough for its support as without it I wouldn’t have been able to race as well as I did in the commonwealth games. Now my sights are set on the European Championships and the new chair puts me in the best possible position to put in a top performance.”
Callum’s next challenge will see him compete over the track distances of 400m and 800m. His current ranking is fourth and fifth, so the event will be an opportunity to improve on his current position. To find out more about Callum and to keep up-to-date on his progress, visit his Facebook page.
