Variety, the Children’s Charity, is thrilled to hear that more of the young disabled athletes we have supported over the years have been chosen to represent Team GB at the 2012 Paralympics this summer.

Recently announced athletes include Oliver Hynd, Andrew Mullen, Jack Bridge, Dan English and Jacob Thomas who will all be a part of the strong Team GB in their respective disciplines.

The swimming trio of Oliver, Andrew and John, as well as Jacob in Boccia and Dan in 5-a-side Football, join a number of Variety supported athletes to have already been called up for selection including Kim Daybell and Ross Wilson, who were called up to the Table Tennis squad last month.

Congratulations to all of the athletes and we can’t wait to see you all in action this summer at the London 2012 Paralympics!
