Shade Station sponsors Mel Clarke paralympian
My name is Mel Clarke, I am 29 years old, and currently training to compete with the Great British Paralympic Team in my second Paralympic games, in London 2012. My sport is Archery, and I have been competing for GB since 2002, in which time I have won County, National, Regional, European and World titles, medals and Championships.
My first Paralympics was Beijing in 2008 – and it was a huge honour to compete for GB, and even greater to succeed in winning a bronze medal at my first games.
My training for the games is going well, I am working hard to be the best I can be, and have just returned from competing at an International Invitational event held at Stoke Mandeville where I won two gold medals – a great start and confidence boost this close to what will be one of the greatest sporting events of my life.
Shade Station have been a huge help, supporting me with Oakley sunglasses, which – with archery being an aiming sport are obviously a vital item to help me when training and competing. As a visually impaired athlete also, being able to use the highest quality products to protect my vision when I compete is incredible important to me, and I know that the fantastic support of Shade Station is adding to my medal chances in London this year.
I can’t wait to compete in the London Paralympics – to be representing Great Britain on ‘home soil’ with my family and friends supporting at the games is going to be incredible, and it’s getting very exciting as we have just passed the ’50 days to go mark’……. Here’s to a great games…..
