Paralympian shows off medals in Hook
A PARALYMPIAN showed off her medals to staff at a BMW garage in Hook.
Bethany Woodward won bronze in the women’s 4x100m relay and silver in the T37 200m at the 2012 Paralympic Games.
The 20-year-old visited Wood, the BMW dealership, in Griffin Way South, to thank the company for sponsoring her during the Games.
She visited the dealership because her mother works for the company’s financial services at offices in the town.
Bethany, who was the youngest competitor in the Great Britain athletics team, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when she was a year old.
Stuart Nicks, a used car sales manager at Wood in Hook, said: “She was buoyant and full of energy and it was a very nice event.”
