RGK Wheelchairs I Ambassadors

At RGK, we boast a huge array of ambassadors, both for our daily and sport chairs. Read about a few of our ambassadors below!

Jordanne Whiley

"Tennis has changed my life - and it can change other people's lives too."

Awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in June 2015, 2 Grandslams and 2 Paralympic bronze medals in so far. Jordanne still has much that she wants to achieve in her career, but is just as dedicated to being a positive role model as she is to her game - "Tennis has changed my life - and it can change other people's lives too. I'm more confident and it's given me the chance to represent my country. My passion is to show other women that you can be as successful as you want to be - and most importantly to be happy without giving in to what society tells you what you should look like".

Gordon Reid

"He who dares, wins."

Finishing 2016 as World Number One for men's singles, Gordon has had a great year, including Wimbledon singles and doubles and a gold and silver medal at Rio. The one on one challenge of going head to head with his opponent and the physical and mental battle that it brings is just one of the draws of wheelchair tennis for Gordon. He also prides himself in breaking down barriers within society around disability, and he has the opportunity to do this through sport in several ways. Gordon visits schools to tell children about his life and to educate and help them feel comfortable around people with disabilities.

Abdi Jama

"As a kid, wheelchair basketball gave me another purpose in life after my accident. It gave me confidence and the belief that you can do anything."

Abdi has won gold in the 2015, 2013 and 2011 European Championships, with a bronze medal at 2016's Paralympics. "This sport has given me a lot of friends. As a kid, it gave me another purpose in life after my accident. It gave me confidence and the belief that you can do anything. My goal is to inspire the next generation. I actually do voluntary work in my local youth centres in Liverpool. I'm hoping to wider my field to Sheffield and Leicester too. I just want kids to stay out of trouble and see me as a role model".

Sophie Carrigill

"Wheelchair basketball has challenged me to think positively about my disability. To see past any boundaries and to do what it takes to be the best."

Sophie represented Great Britain at the European Championships both in 2013 and 2015, winning bronze medals. Selected to captain the team in 2014, Sophie went on to compete in the World Wheelchair Basketball Championships in Toronto and won a gold medal at the U25 World Championships in Beijing in 2015.
