A March girl who was born with spina bifida won gold in the under 17s women’s wheelchair race at the London Mini-Marathon.
Chloe Lewis, who goes to Neale-Wade Academy and has aspirations of becoming a Paralympic athlete, completed the 2.6K course in 9 minutes and 55 seconds.
It's not the first time Chloe has taken a medal home, though, as she previously won bronze in 2018 and silver in 2019 when she was competing in the under 14s events.
Also in 2019, Chloe raised £800 in sponsorship for Moorfields Eye Hospital in London where her grandma Gillian Lewis was receiving treatment for eye cancer.
In 2018, she donated £1,300 of sponsorship money to Buffs Locomotive Lodge based at the March Braza Club
The locomotive lodge club met Chloe in 2012 when she was in need of a new specialist wheelchair to help with her spina bifida.
Her family had been fundraising but they were just short of the final cost.
