Clare Griffths was one of Britain’s top wheelchair basketball players competing for her country at five Paralympic Games from 1998 to 2016, retiring after a career high and team PB finish of 4th place in Rio with GB competing in their first major championship medal match.
In September 1997, Clare sustained damage to her spinal cord after a horse riding accident which left her paralysed from the waist down. Sport has always been a large part of her life and Clare took up wheelchair basketball during her time in rehab at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
Clare uses her life and sport experiences to demonstrate key learning points particularly in relation to mental toughness, coping with change and delivering sustained high performance.
All students and staff at St Anne’s are welcome to attend.
