On Sunday 10th July Royal Sutton Coldfield Athlete Muninder Singh Hayer and his coach Graham Felton are flying out to Denmark for the CPISRA Open European Racerunning Championships. Muninder has been competing for 13 years now and since the moment he won his first competitive medal he always knew sport was in his blood. He is a very determined individual and does not cIass himself different to anyone else. When he is on the track he is there to win! He always dreamt of getting his first international call up and when he did last year he wanted to prove to everyone that this was the beginning of something special. At the World Championships in Nottingham last year he won Gold in the F31 seated Club Throw, setting a World Record. Now he is competing for England at the European Championships in Denmark at his first overseas competition and the feeling is just magical. His aim to come away with a couple of medals and just get the job done.
For the uninitiated Racerunning is a sport for wheelchair athletes with Cerebral Palsy and requires both physical and mental strength This will only be Muninder’s 3rd competition as a Racerunner.
