Famous Brit of the Week


Today, Mr Browning led this week's Famous Brits assembly on David Weir. He is a British Paralympic wheelchair athlete, being Great Britain’s most successful athlete at the London 2012 Paralympic Games and winning four gold medals to add to his two golds in Beijing four years earlier. He has also won the London Marathon on eight occasions and currently holds the British record at all track distances up to 5,000m, as well as on the road at 10km, half- marathon and marathon. Nicknamed, 'the Weirwolf', he certainly is a national sporting hero.
