Jonnie Peacock MBE

Gold medallist paralympic sprint runner at London 2012 and Rio 2016

About

Jonnie Peacock is the Double Paralympic, World & European T44 100m Champion. He sensationally won his first Paralympic title at the London 2012 Games during one of the best summers in British Athletics history. He then successfully defended his title at the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

Jonnie lost his right leg below the knee after he contracted Meningitis when he was just 5 years old. Demonstrating the fighting spirit which would eventually help him to become a world-class sprinter, Jonnie made a full recovery from the disease. Whilst having his prosthetic leg fitted in hospital, Jonnie was encouraged to take part in a Paralympic sports talent day.

In May 2012, after years of training and taking part in regional events, Jonnie competed in his first international race at the Paralympic World Cup in Manchester. A month later he broke the World Record and on 6th September 2012 he won Gold, making it a year to remember.

In 2013, Jonnie Peacock was awarded with an MBE in the New Years Honours list for services to athletics.

In 2016, Jonnie won the T44 100m final at the IPC Athletics European Championships in Grossetto and just a month prior to the Paralympic Games Jonnie recorded a lifetime best and a British Record at the Loughborough EAP meeting.

It was also in this year that Jonnie became a double Paralympic Champion, defending his title and setting a new Paralympic Record in the process. Jonnie then continued his unbelievable success into 2017 by winning Gold in the World-Para Athletics Championships!

In what is a remarkable journey, Jonnie Peacock's determination, courage and attitude has led him to become one of Great Britain’s best Paralympians and an inspiration to many young people.

He is passionate about building the profile of disability sport and has vowed to take part in as many Paralympics as he possibly can, with the hope of winning more medals in the process.
