About Login
Jamie is a 22 year old adaptive athlete with a below-knee amputation from Basingstoke, Hampshire. Jamie aspires to represent Great Britain to achieve a gold medal in discus and javelin at the next 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo. After being born with chronic pain, Jamie made the difficult decision to undergo a below-knee amputation in September 2016. As part of his rehabilitation following surgery, Jamie will be learning how to walk and train with his prosthesis. Going forward, he will require a number of different prosthesis specific to his sporting needs to enable him to train to his full potential. Jamie will be classified as an F44 athlete to enable him to compete with the best in the UK and world. He has been working hard during 2016 to develop his technique and skills. With the right training and support, he will achieve a top 15 world ranking in the next two years, with a goal to be in the top 10 by 2018 and top 5 by 2019 putting him firmly in place for Paralympic selection. In order to achieve his goals, Jamie will need to work with throws, strength & conditioning coaches, sports therapists, and nutritionists to ensure he remains healthy, injury free and can compete to the best of his ability. Whilst Jamie is determined to work hard to fund his athletics ambition, the cost of training and the sports specific prosthesis will require additional support through sponsorship, fundraising and donations. Jamie has already been very active across a number of social media platforms, which has resulted in him receiving coverage by national print media and the BBC. This has resulted in them producing a documentary of his journey through amputation to his goal of reaching the Tokyo games. Jamie’s ambition is to be a role model to other young people who are in similar situations to his. He wants to inspire them to believe that they can overcome challenges and see the opportunities open to them in both the world of work and sport. He challenges stereotypes which people may associate with his impairment including completing multiple Tough Mudders, rock climbing, Judo and competitive powerlifting. His acceptance speech for his Gold Duke of Edinburgh award was an inspiration to two hundred people and has lead him to meeting with the Royal Family. www.jamiegane.com
