Record-breaker Sammi features in star-studded line-up for major athletics honours

Mattioli Woods-sponsored Sammi Kinghorn has joined an elite band of athletes in the running for some top sporting accolades.

Wheelchair racer Sammi has been shortlisted for British Female Para-Athlete of the Year in Athletics Weekly’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2017.

She features in a list of nominees including international big names such as Mo Farah and Usain Bolt across 11 categories.

Sammi shone on the global stage at this summer’s world para athletics championships in London, where she picked up two gold medals and a bronze.

She took to social media to say it was “so incredible” to be named in the same line-up as household names from track and field events.

The winners – chosen by readers of Athletics Weekly magazine – will be announced on December 7.

Mattioli Woods is a long-term sponsor of Sammi, who recently visited the company’s offices in Leicester as a thank you for its continued support.
