Miller selected in GB team for Paralympics

BARROW athlete Dean Miller has been selected in the Great Britain team to compete in the London Paralympics.

The 22-year-old Barrow and Furness Striders ace will run in the 1500m in the T37 class (a category for athletes with cerebral palsy).

A total of 49 athletes have been named in the squad, with no fewer than 28 - including Miller - set to make their Paralympic debut in London.

Miller Tweeted: "It's an honour to finally call myself a Paralympian after missing out four years ago, the hard work starts now!"

See Wednesday's Evening Mail for all the reaction to Miller's Paralympic selection

Have your say

You have done so well Dean and we look forward to seeing your progress. Instead of awarding the sportsman of the year award you will be collecting it!!! Good Luck.
