Meet Evie Edwards, Jordan Catchpole and Zoe Newson, three Suffolk athletes taking in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games
Hoping to win gold and put the county on the map are Suffolk's Paralympic athletes, who will travel to Tokyo for the 2020 Paralympic Games which begin tomorrow.
The county is home to a huge amount of sporting talent, most recently seen in our Tokyo 2020 Olympic success, and these three athletes are no exception:
Beccles resident, Jordan Catchpole, is a rising star in British Para-Swimming.
The 21-year-old has won medals at the World and European Championships, swimming everything from Backstroke to Freestyle to Butterfly.
Jordan began swimming aged four after encouragement from his grandad, and competed in his first competition in 2015. He swam for Team Waveney Swimming Club, Lowestoft.
Hailing from Ipswich, former competitive swimmer Evie Edwards will attend her second Paralympic games as part of the GB Boccia team.
This follows her fourth place title in her debut in the sport at Rio 2016, where she and her teammates lost to Brazil in the semi-final.
Boccia is a similar sport to bowls or pétanque and can be played with hands, feet or using an assistive ramp.
There are four classes for the sport, BC1 to BC4, which are assigned depending on player's functional ability.
Evie will compete in the competition alongside eight other GB Boccia players, including four-time medal holder, David Smith.
Twenty-nine-year-old powerlifter, Zoe Newson, who was born in Ipswich, is no stranger to paralympic success, having won bronze in the London 2012 and Rio 2016 games.
Zoe began powerlifting at East Bergholt Sport Centre in 2007 and won her first competition in 2008.
She will be heading to Tokyo, leaving behind a husband and son who will be proudly supporting her from home.
She will be competing on Thursday, August 26.
