After contracting Meningitis as a nine month old, the disease caused septicaemia, which led to amputations on his right leg above the knee, his left leg below the knee, his right hand and the fingertips on his left.

First introduced to pool swimming at the age of one by his grandfather, Lyndon was sixteen when he competed at his first national championships in 2011 and now boasts eight British Para-Swimming long course records to his name.

Tokyo 2020 was Longhorne’s debut Paralympic appearance, but he actually carried the Olympic torch during the relay for the London 2012 Games.
