Fieldfisher announces sponsorship of paratriathlete and Rio 2016 Paralympics hopeful Andy Lewis
Andy, 32, lost his leg in a road accident when he was just 16 years old and decided to take up triathlon following the 2012 Paralympics. Last year, he won both the GB para-triathlon championships and the Madrid ITU paratriathlon. This year he finished 4th in the European Championships, 3rd at the Madrid ITU event and 2nd at the Buffalo City ITU event. He recently finished 3rd at the Rio test event, competing on the same course and against many of the same competitors he will hopefully be facing next September at the Paralympics.

Mark Bowman, partner specialising in personal injury and medical negligence amputee claims said:
"As soon as I met Andy I was keen to help him and I am thrilled that Fieldfisher have entered into a sponsorship agreement with Andy, which will take him up to and hopefully beyond the Rio Paralympics in September 2016. Andy is a prime example of someone who has overcome his difficulties and is a perfect role model, not only for our clients but also the public at large. The next 12 months in the lead up to the Rio Paralympics will be the most demanding but exciting of Andy's life and we will share his journey with you by providing regular updates of his training, progress and competition results. Please do follow him on twitter @bladerunnerAndy and support him all the way, hopefully to a gold medal next September."
In the coming months, Andy will be taking part in a number of events at Fieldfisher and will be wearing a Fieldfisher branded GB tri-suit for his races in the lead up to the Paralympics.
