Disley Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey has been announced as an ambassador for the next ParalympicsGB Sports Fest, in Manchester in May.

The 22-time Paralympic medallist Dame Sarah Storey has lent her support to free multi-sport event for disabled people, which aims to capture some of the enthusiasm built up over the 2012 games and this year’s winter games.

Sports Fest promises attendees the chance to ‘meet the medallists, try the sports, get inspired’.

The track and road cycling superstar said: “After everything that sport has done for me, I truly believe that sport can change your life and this is an opportunity for lots of disabled people to find out more about how sport could change theirs. I’ll be there myself along with my family and I’d really encourage other disabled people to come along and give sport a go.”

Visitors to the event can come and try Paralympic sports as well as meet the medallists, have their photos taken and have autographs.
