Knott brothers set for the Paralympics

First published in Sport

The Knott brothers from Chandlers Ford have been included in Great Britain's Goalball squad for the Paralympics.

Adam and David have excelled at Goalball, a sport for the visually impaired, since taking it up less than two years ago.

Elder brother Adam, 17, said: “We played in the venue [the Copper Box] in front of 1,000 people and that was fantastic.

"But it is off the scale to think we will be playing for GB in front of 7,000 fans. It will be amazing and emotional. I can’t wait.”

"To hear my name in the squad was incredible and the Paralympics will be awesome."

At 15, David is younger than his brother by two years. He was also excited today, saying: "To be there alongside my brother is an extra bonus for both of us.”
