Stephen Miller, a three time gold medal winning Paralympian, is all set to defend his European F32 Club Throw title at the IPC European Athletics Championships which are being held from the 18th-23rd August in Swansea. Stephen is bidding to win his 4th consecutive European Gold Medal in Club Throw having won in all IPC European Championships which have been held since 2003.
Before Stephen heads down the M1 to Swansea, he is launching a special photography exhibition called ‘100% Stephen Miller’. The exhibition, which has been crafted by photographer Dan Prince, comprises of photos taken over a two year period. Stephen, who with his wife Rachel founded SMILE Through Sport late last year, is hoping the exhibition will shed some light on the life of a professional sportsperson and can provide some motivation to those who come to see it.
Stephen said “To represent Great Britain again at the IPC European Championships is a huge honour, I’m in good shape and am confident I can deliver a performance to be proud of. Launching the 100% exhibition the week before I go to Swansea will be great, I had a lot of fun working with Dan and the photos look amazing. I hope lots of people will come and see it and get inspired to give 100%.”
The exhibition will be on show to the public at Gateshead College Academy for Sport from 17th August – 5th September. Then it will be on the move to venues all over the North East.
