It was a privilege for Richard Nieveen to be given official accreditation by British Paralympic Association (BPA) and to be the first prosthetist to be part of Paralympics Team GB for the Tokyo 2020 Games. Paralympic accreditation is a very significant document; it dictates where you can go and what you can do at the Games. Unlike previous Games (London 2012 and Rio 2016) where he travelled independently as personal prosthetist with occasional access to a workshop, in Tokyo I was with the athletes 24/7 as they prepared and competed in their events.
At Proactive we are very proud of the athletes we supported as part of Team GB and the successes they shared with the rest of the Paralympic Team GB.
