Award Knighthoods to David Weir and Lee Pearson. PARAOLYMPIANS who have performed and surpassed many other athletes with gold medals and other achievements. If fully fit athletes like rowers can be given Knighthoods, why not DISABLED athletes who have won more gold medals over a longer period.
ONLY asking for parity, nothing more
Why is this important?
The system should be FAIR and EQUAL to all athletes. These men are proud to represent their country and have furthered their careers by passing on their knowledge and commitment to young disabled sportsmen and women.The system has to be seen as balanced and give equality to all achieving similar or higher results.Therefore, they should be awarded Knighthoods. David has earned more golds than Dame Tanny Grey Thompson!
