Amauteur sportsman Bobby Griffin had a bad road accident in June 2008. In July 2010 he took a very brave decision and opted for a leg amputation to help him recover and fulfil his true potential. Within 10 months of amputation, Bobby is back to running, cycling, climbing and has succeeding very impressively in his first sport, badminton. Now the british number 1 Parabadminton player within this very small timeframe, he returned from a world international event in June 11 with a Silver medal and is trying to raise funds and support to help get himself and the team to the Parabadminton World Championships in Guatemal in November. Just to meet Bobby fills anyone with inspiration. Having spent a very painful and difficult 3 years coping with his injuries, he manages to hold down his same full time job and dedicates all of his time to rehabilitaion, sports training and even mentors other patients who are about to go through similar operations to give something back! He is a very optimistic, personable and determined character who has a pure love of all sport, and who inspires everyone he meets when they learn of his loss and achievements. I don't know anyone better suited, or who would be more thrilled with the honour of carrying the Olympic Torch.
