Meet Ben Watson: The Double-Gold Winning Paralympian

Words by Abi Scaife

In the next part of their cycling adventure, Travis and his deaf cat Sigrid met an inspiring paralympic cyclist, Ben Watson. 

When he was 14, Ben was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome. He overcame this health challenge and went on to become a double Paralympic champion in Tokyo two years ago. 

Today he supports GAIN, a small charity supporting people with Guillain-Barré syndrome. 

“Charity, for me, means being able to help people who need a bit more help,” Ben told Travis.
