Olympic torch holder Katy Wilson


The South Normanton Taekwon-Do School Instructors Mr Peter Brannan and Mrs Joanne Brannan.

Joanne writes:

Katy Wilson is 16 years old and has Cystic Fibrosis, despite this she plays tennis every day and has represented Derbyshire in all age groups including playing for the Ladies team.    I nominated Katy because of her brilliant attitude towards having Cystic Fibrosis and towards playing tennis.   Last year has been a difficult one health-wise for Katy and she hasn't been able to play as well or as much as usual, but she is determined that having Cystic Fibrosis will not rule her life.   Katy never complains about having Cystic Fibrosis and never asks for any special treatment.   She just keeps on smiling and keeps on playing tennis.
