Wheelchair racer

Hannah Cockroft, MBE is 12-times World Champion and Paralympic Gold medallist in T34 wheelchair racing with a determination and positive attitude to succeed at whatever challenges life presents on or off the track. From that first race she’s never looked back and went from a novice racer to elite status in three years. In 2010 she broke her first World Record in the T34 400m, and went on to break several World Records in 8 days and now holds world records at T34 100m 200m, 400m and 800m. More recently, Hannah achieved an amazing double Gold in the World Para Athletic Championships in Dubai 2019, and broke the World Record for 100m.

Off the track, Hannah has a busy lifestyle but still finds time to enjoy live concerts, shopping and socialising with friends. Her pursuit of excellence, passion and drive to succeed makes Hannah an ideal ambassador for Invacare and our leading brands Kuschall and Top End.  Currently, Hannah uses a Top End OSR racing chair that offers the speed, agility and performance on the track and a handcycle as a part of her rigorous training routine.  The Kuschall K-series is her preferred everyday chair and she also uses the Kuschall Champion for its folding, yet rigid performance.
