Success is psychological - our brain determines whether we are successful or failures, even in sport which is predominantly seen as a display of physical prowess. Inspirational Danielle truly believes that strength of character has an important role to play in everybody’s journey to success, regardless of the field.

Danielle Brown is a double Paralympic gold medallist in archery and three time World Champion. She also won a gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, where she was the first disabled athlete to represent England in an able-bodied discipline. Currently Danielle holds all 12 Paralympic world records, and was ranked world number 1 for her entire career. Whilst competing at a world class level Danielle also attained a first class law degree. Danielle achieved heights that others didn’t even realise were possible until she did it, setting the standards for others and proving that disability is no bar to achieving.
