Find out what has been going on at the Panathlon Challenge.
Mercedes Jacdonmi is the 2019 winner of Panathlon’s top annual honour for competitors in London and Essex - the Jack Pet
Read all about Panathlon's role in the transformation of Red Oak Primary School in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
Robinswood Trust from Gloucester were crowned Panathlon National Primary champions at the Copper Box Arena.
It’s particularly inspiring to see how far Panathlon has come as an organisation and how many lives have been touched. There is no better illustration of the power of sport than a Panathlon event.
For schools to come together like this is great, you don’t get that luxury very often. Social skills are some of the most important things we try and teach them at our school so to see them interact, celebrate when they win and shake hands at the end is spot on
This is the first time I’ve played football here at Wembley. It’s inspiring. It’s good to take part, as tournaments like this aren’t normally for disabled kids.
Never have we been to an event before that was aimed perfectly at the ability of our children.
I’m really glad I’ve met somebody with the same condition as me. We’ve both got spina bifida, so I can relate to him and I’m really glad that we had a chat. He’s a big inspiration, so I think I might take up racing!
Today was fun; I loved everything I did today. It was a great also meeting Paralympian gold medalist, Liz Johnson.
You’ve got children here that don’t particularly gel very well and to walk away with the trophy as regional champions is a pretty awesome achievement. It’s a reward for teamwork.
I’m the only pupil on the Panathlon team from my school, so it’s a great opportunity to have fun and meet other people.
Panathlon means everything to the kids. There’s nothing else for them where they can compete at sport, so it means the world to them. If it wasn’t for Panathlon they wouldn’t be competing.
Panathlon for us is about getting the children out in the community, engaging with other people from different schools, competing, working on leadership and teamwork, but mostly just having fun.
