We sat on Henman hill with a couple beers and a jug of Pimms in the blazing sunshine. He told me how inspiring it’s been working in Paralympic sport, and how sport and music in general has the potential to have such a positive impact on people’s lives.
“I spent a year working with the GB women's wheelchair basketball team as their fitness coach and during this time the head coach and players came up with a slogan to help unite the team on their journey to the world champs and Paralympic Games. "GB 365" was chosen and represented everyones complete and unshakable commitment to the team, 365 days a year, whether training, competing or resting! I ended up joking with the head coach about writing a song to capture this message, and before long I was performing a live acoustic version of GB 365 during a training session before they left for the world champs, which would also end up being my leaving present to the team! It made my day when I received video clips of the players chanting the words to the chorus in the locker room after finishing in their highest position ever at that point!”
