Primary Press Conference with Rik Waddon

Rik Waddon

Today, four year 5 children enjoyed an experience of meeting the amazing Rik Waddon at Abraham Guest Academy.

At the age of 14, Rik began competing in cycling, after being inspired by watching Tour de France as a youngster. Since then Rik has shown great consistency, bringing home medals from most major competitions.

He suffers from Cerebral Palsy after falling from his bike at the age of five. We asked him a range of questions about his sport. We had a great time and look forward to seeing him in September at the Paralympics. Follow your dreams and go for gold!

  1. This sounds a very interesting day. It will be great to watch someone you have actually met take part in the Paralympic Games. Let’s hope he does get a gold medal!
