Binbrook Paralympian Jamie Carter has been recognised for his achievements in sport for the third year in a row.

18-year-old Jamie, who is 19 later this month, was once again named Young Disabled Sportsperson of the Year at the Lincolnshire Sports Awards, run by the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership

Last summer, Jamie made his Paralympic debut for the Team GB in the T34 100m and 200m Wheelchair Sprints, reaching the final of the 200m event in the Olympic stadium.

Since then, Jamie has been training hard for upcoming European and the World Championship and has his sights firmly set on Rio 2016.

“It’s been another exciting but very busy 12 months,” said Jamie.

“It’s great to see what the Olympic legacy has done for Lincolnshire and I can really see the difference it has made to disability sport.”

Jamie is the British record holder for 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m and the European record holder for 1500m in the T34 category.

Now he is moving up to middle distance racing for Rio 2016.

“I’m very proud of all of my achievements so far. I’m looking forward to the World Champions next year, then for the future, it will be about getting ready for the Rio Games.

“To win this award for the third time really means a lot to me.

“I am honoured to once again to be recognised for what I’ve done.”
