Margaret Maughan

Margaret Maughan is acknowledged as Britain’s first ever Paralympic gold medal winner. A patient of Sir Ludwig Guttmann at the infamous National Spinal Injury Centre at Stoke Mandeville, Margaret is a pioneer of the Paralympic movement. 

Her Archery gold medal at Rome 1960 was not just a display of sporting talent, but a testimony to her spirit and endeavour at a time where competing in sport came with significant additional challenges.
