Gordon’s Samantha Kinghorn, one of the UK’s most successful wheelchair racers, has become the first person in the country to be supplied with a new ‘every day’ carbon fibre wheelchair from mobility specialists Ottobock.

Samantha said: “I’ve always been active, and spent my childhood outdoors on the farm. I used to horse ride, and enjoyed gymnastics at school. As soon as I tried wheelchair racing I knew it was what I wanted to do. Off the track, I have used a number of different wheelchairs – I have a farm chair for the mud and puddles! I look forward to travelling around the world with my new Voyager Evo and putting it through its paces as I train for the World Championships – and who knows, maybe Rio!”
