It is my absolute pleasure to announce that I have partnered up with the fantastic team from the Diabetes Sports Project! Living with Diabetes is a daily struggle (occasionally an hourly one), and to be teamed up with these athletes as a Champion is a real honour!
These guys epitomise what it means to be an elite athlete, let alone suffering with a crippling disease that is both mentally and physically draining, and to be considered as an equal is humbling to say the least!
