MEET OUR LEARNERS
Grimsby Institute’s very own Paralympian, Jamie Carter, took part in the T34 Wheelchair Race during London 2012 and last year won a Bronze Medal at the International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports (IWAS) World Junior Games 2014.
Jamie, a former Sport learner at the Grimsby Institute, won the medal in the 800m competition, narrowly missing out on the Bronze in the 400m competition the day before. Jamie’s Mum, Sandra Carter, said: “We’re bursting with pride as this is his first international medal.”
