Jack Hunter-Spivey will get the home Games chance he always dreamed of at Birmingham 2022, the latest chapter in his inspiring sporting story.
Born in a deprived area of Liverpool, he was deaf and blind until nine months old.
Hunter-Spivey was playing table tennis in a youth club in Widnes when London won the bid for the 2012 Paralympics - and he narrowly missed out on competing there.
Ten years on, he will take the adoration of a home crowd as a Paralympic medallist having scooped individual bronze in men's class 5 at his second Games in Tokyo.
Hunter-Spivey, described as a ‘warrior on the table’, has also overcome serious mental health issues in his journey to the summit of his sport.
