“I was never necessarily inspired by anyone, I just wanted to see how far I could go…”
Will Perry has gone very far in a short space of time when it comes to swimming, far enough to represent Team Great Britain at the Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2021 in fact. He is not competing at the Para World Swimming Championships currently taking place in Manchester, but has provided his thoughts on the competition and given his swathes of experience at the highest level, when Perry talks it’s worth listening.
The 22-year-old has multiple British records to his name, including in the SB6 100m Breaststroke. Perry, who has a common form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, has shed light on his stance on the championships currently taking place, waxing lyrical about the impact it could have.
